【藏品简介】:清代银币、纸钞、铜币并行,至嘉庆年间发行新式银元,而光绪年间铸行金、银币更多。洋务运动也影响到铸币业,两广总督张之洞曾于光绪十三年(1887年)委托使英大臣在英国订购全套造币机器,并在广东钱局首铸机制银元和铜元。其后,各省纷纷仿效,购制国外机械铸造银、铜元。包括广东钱局在内,许多造币机均订购自著名的英国伦敦伯明翰造币有限公司。英国大工业的介入,使银币也沾染上西方色彩。钱币正面鲜然可见满汉文化的融合,而钱背却明确标示了西方文化的介入。当制十文较多,当制二十文较少,具有很高的收藏价值,市面真品一币难求!户部当值二十文现存许多,做工精致,在同类中具有极高的收藏价值

[introduction to collection]: in the Qing Dynasty, silver coins, paper notes and copper coins coexisted, and new silver coins were issued in the Jiaqing period, while more gold and silver coins were cast in the Guangxu period. The westernization movement also affected the coinage industry. In 1887, Zhang Zhidong, governor of Guangdong and Guangxi, commissioned the British ministers to order a complete set of coinage machines in the UK, and cast the first machine-made silver and copper coins in the Guangdong monetary Bureau. After that, all provinces followed suit and purchased foreign mechanical casting silver and copper. Many of the mints, including the Guangdong money Bureau, were ordered from the famous Birmingham Mint Co., Ltd., London, UK. The intervention of the British big industry made the silver coin also stained with western color. The integration of Manchu and Han culture is rarely seen on the obverse of the coin, but the back of the coin clearly indicates the intervention of western culture. When the system of ten Wen more, when the system of 20 Wen less, with a high collection value, the market is hard to find a real coin! There are a lot of twenty articles on duty in Hubu, which are exquisite and of high collection value among the same kind

光绪元宝是大清光绪年流通大面值货币之首,是我国首批引进海外技术的印发流通货币,对于现今也蕴藏了一定历史意义。广东省造光绪元宝在中国近代机器铸币史上属一个大系列,其铸期历时甚长(从光绪22年—光绪34年[1896至1908年]),历经十余载,币模几经更替,即使同一铸造年份亦往往由于修模、币材、工艺技术、工厂管理等诸多因素,造成版别异常繁杂。

Guangxu Yuanbao was the first currency with large denomination in the reign of Guangxu in the Qing Dynasty. It was the first circulation currency to introduce overseas technology. It also has a certain historical significance for today. Guangxu Yuanbao made in Guangdong province belongs to a large series in the history of modern Chinese machine coinage. Its casting period lasted for a long time (from the 22nd year of Guangxu to the 34th year of Guangxu [1896-1908]). After more than ten years, the coinage has been replaced several times. Even in the same year, many factors, such as mold repair, coin material, technology, factory management, and so on, often lead to extremely complicated editions.

此枚钱币为户部光绪元宝当制钱二十文,正面珠圈内铸汉文“光绪元宝”四字,上环满文,下环书“当制钱二十文”,左右分列“户”、“部”与梅花星点;背面为蟠龙图,上下环铸英文计值。字迹深刻镌秀,龙纹雕刻精美。包浆浑厚老道,沁色自然,充满岁月之痕迹与浓浓的历史沉淀感,收藏价值极高。古钱币极具观赏性与历史价值,因此古钱币如同其他古玩一样被藏家们所青睐。中国最早的机制洋式钱币为光绪年间的“光绪元宝”,钱币背面 铸有龙纹。珍稀古钱币是货币历史的实物,由于早已不在流通领域,留存下来的亦少之极少,更是历史的见证,值得被藏友们收藏!

On the front of the coin, there are four characters of "Guangxu Yuanbao" in Chinese, Manchu in the upper ring, and "twenty characters of Dang Zhiqian" in the lower ring, with "Hu", "bu" and plum star dots on the left and right; on the back, there is a picture of Panlong, with English values in the upper and lower rings. The handwriting is deep and beautiful, and the dragon pattern is exquisitely carved. It's rich and natural, full of traces of time and a strong sense of historical precipitation. Ancient coins are of great ornamental and historical value, so they are favored by collectors just like other antiques. The earliest machine-made foreign coins in China are "Guangxu Yuanbao" in the reign of Guangxu. The rare ancient coins are the real objects of currency history. Because they are no longer in circulation, few of them have survived. They are also the witness of history and are worth collecting by collectors!
