Shanxi Yichang Sheng culture has the privilege of collecting from Mr. Xiang
to this 20-text double flag coin made in Hunan Province. Let's enjoy it together!
This collection is handed down to Mr. Xiang family, the whole coin is thick, the handwriting mold is clear, although there is a small amount of wear and tear just proved the historical trace of the collection! What makes this coin special is that there is a five-petal plum blossom at the intersection of the two flags in the center of the coin, which reflects the special features of the coin, as well as the exquisite design, and the image of the plum blossom is alive and well!
清末民初是个动荡的年代，1911年辛亥革命胜利后，清帝退位。中国民主主义革命的先驱者孙中山在颁布的“临时令”中提出要“另刊新模，鼓铸纪念币”，随后武昌和南京两处造币厂率先铸行了 “双旗币”铜元辅币，以十文面值的为主，在全国大量发行以取代清朝铜元。另有二十文，五十文，百文和二百文等面额，这就是“开国纪念币” 铜元的由来。但是当时经济并不发达，加上连年战乱，百姓民不聊生。大面额钱币流通并不理想，所以市面以当十居多，面额二十，五十、铸造并不多，湖南省造五瓣梅花版双旗币更是少之又少！
In the late Qing Dynasty and the beginning of the Republic of China, the emperor abdicated after the victory of the 1911 Revolution. Sun Yat-sen, the forerunner of China's democratic revolution, proposed in the "temporary order" to "issue a new model and cast commemorative coins". Subsequently, Wuchang and Nanjing mint took the lead in casting "double flag coins" copper yuan auxiliary coins, mainly in ten languages, and issued a large number of copper coins in the whole country to replace the Qing Dynasty copper yuan. There are also twenty, fifty, hundred and 200 denominations, which is the origin of the founding coin. But at that time the economy was not developed, coupled with years of war, the people were in trouble. The circulation of large denomination coins is not ideal, so The market is more than ten, the face value is 20, 50, casting is not much, Hunan Province to make five plum blossom version of the double flag coin is even less!
In 1914, the difference between the copper coins issued in the Republic of China and the Qing Dynasty was that the dragon grain was replaced by the Jiahe grain composed of rice panicles. In order to highlight the overthrow of the feudal dictatorship system, put the working masses in the first place of the reform.
Under the thick pulp is the crystallization of the wisdom of the laborious masses of the past dynasties, but also the witness of the progress of history. Today, such coins have long been eliminated and cannot be used, but will not be forgotten by history. It shows that a unique period of history, a small turning point in the history of human progress, and today, mostly as a collection, antiques appear in our lives. Because of its particularity, a group of enthusiasts who have a special passion for coins struggle to pursue it.
