No matter whether Yuan Datou Silver Dollar is a regular edition or a treasured edition, the price has undergone tremendous changes in the past ten years. As for its value, I think we should start with the historical casting background of Yuan Datou.
After the demise of the Qing Dynasty, Yuan Shikai became President in April 1912. Since modern times, China's money and silver system has gradually entered a transitional period. The so-called transitional period is a transitional period from silver coins in feudal society to modern banknotes. In order to improve his ruling position, Yuan Shikai cast his head on the coin surface. As Yuan Shikai's head was squarely carved on the silver dollar, the world called it "Yuan Datou".
In view of the complexity of coins and bank notes at that time, the circulation of more than 100 kinds of Chinese and foreign currencies with different specifications, chaotic circulation, complicated conversion, and people's accumulated resentment, the Beiyang government decided to make use of currency restructuring to solve the problem of military expenditure, and decided to issue the national currency.
Yuan Shikai silver coins cast in the three years of the Republic of China have many different versions. The pattern on the front is basically the same, but the pattern on the back and some details are still different. After the 1911 Revolution, Yuan Shikai became the "temporary president" and later became the official president. "Yuan Datou" did not exist for a long time and was soon replaced by "Little Head Sun" following his downfall. However, it was also because of its short existence that it attracted the attention of collectors. Yuan Datou itself is quite rare, but what is even rarer than Yuan Datou is the signature version of Yuan Datou in the three years of the Republic of China, which is a rare masterpiece.
If we look closely at the signed version of Yuan Datou in the third year of the Republic of China, we will find an English signature in the lower right corner of the silver dollar within a very small space. The workmanship is very exquisite, and the space occupied by each signature is very fixed. It is really a dance on the tip of a knife, which is greatly appreciated. In the three years of the Republic of China, Yuan Datou was an "evergreen tree" in the coin collection market because of its unique characteristics.
Collection is of great significance and has long been sought after by collectors. In addition, the price of Yuan Datou is also increasing year by year. Among the many editions of "Yuan Datou", the most "signature edition" has the highest price, which is especially noticeable for its humanistic value, historical value and its rarity.
