Jiangnan Province made the silver coin of Kuping seven coins and two cents (big English pearl dragon long thorn), the first treasure of Guangxu in 1898, which was officially minted and publicly issued in the 24th year of Guangxu (1898). Jiangnan Province (Nanjing) is one of China's important trading ports. During the Qing Dynasty, with the increasing development of foreign trade, the demand for silver coins increased year by year, and foreign silver coins gradually occupied China's circulation market. When Guangdong and Hubei first began to cast silver coins, Jiangsu Province allocated two silver coins to Hubei Province every year to exchange for Hubei silver coins for circulation. Liu Shenyi, the governor of Liangjiang, played at the court in the 22nd year of Guangxu (1896) and asked for silver coins. After approval, a mint was built in Nanjing. In the 23rd year of Guangxu (1897), the silver coins of Guangxu in Jiangnan Province were minted. The silver coins of Jiangnan Province were divided into several silver coins of Ganzhi years, and the edition was also the largest in China. This product has been handed down for a long time. Guangxu Yuanbao is one of the currencies in circulation during the reign of Guangxu in the Qing Dynasty. Zhang Zhidong, governor of Hubei Province and Guangdong Province, took the lead in introducing the British coinage machine to cast silver and copper coins, and later provinces followed suit.
The silver coin with seven coins and two cents of the Guangxu Yuanbao of the Wuxu Movement in Jiangnan is the first silver coin with the Ganzhi era engraved on the Guangxu Yuanbao made in Jiangnan Province. There are two types of silver coins, big English and small English on the back. The old dragon on the back of the two types of silver coins is different. The central bead circle on the front of the silver coin is inscribed with the four characters "Guangxu Yuanbao" in Chinese, the upper end of the circle is inscribed with the words "made in Jiangnan Province" (there are few central points in Manchu and long inner teeth), the lower end is inscribed with the words "Kuping seven coins and two cents", and the left and right sides are inscribed with the words "Wuxu" for the Ganzhi chronology (the other version of Wuxu is rare). The silver coin is engraved with a pearl dragon in the middle of the back (with concave and convex eyes), the English "Jiangnan Province" on the upper end, and the English coin weight "Kuping Seven Coins and Two Fens" on the lower end. The font has large and small English versions. This is the basic feature of the silver coin of Kuping Seven Coins and Two Fens, the treasure of the Wuxu Reign in Jiangnan. This coin has a small number of surviving in the world, so it is also a favorite collection of many collectors because of its unique scales with dragon patterns on the back, such as pearl inlay, So it was nicknamed "Pearl Dragon" version. As can be seen from the pictures, both the characters and the decorative patterns are very exquisite, with sharp convexity and concavity. The strokes and decorative lines of the characters are round and round, which shows that the stamping force of the mold is deep, making its product extremely beautiful, and its technological level is also beyond the reach of the forgery up to now. Like a coin made in Jiangnan Province, Guangxu Yuanbao, Pingqidi, is now very rare in the market, and the wrapped paste is natural and simple, with good appearance and great collection value!
