[introduction to the collection]: since ancient times, there have been countless porcelain and ornaments with birthday celebrations as the theme, but coins as the theme of birthday celebrations are extremely rare. In the field of coin collection, there is a long-standing silver coin, which has been listed as one of the top ten treasures of modern Chinese machine-made coins because of its exquisite production and rare quantity. It has also been searched and excavated for thousands of years. This is the shuanglongshou coin made in Guangdong Province.
Guangxu Yuanbao is the earliest machine-made foreign style silver coin in China, commonly known as "Longyang". It is named after the dragon pattern on the back of silver coin. On both sides of the coin is engraved with the word "Guangxu coin" and "Guangxu coin". On the back of the silver coin, the pattern of double dragons playing with pearls was cast outside the bead circle, and the word "Shou" was cast inside the bead circle. The design of silver coin is very characteristic. A pair of bat patterns cast on both sides of the front imply auspiciousness. Because the word "bat" and "Fu" are homophonic, corresponding to the word "Shou" on the back, implying "both happiness and longevity".
The coin was coined in the early 1905 of Guangxu, which is to commemorate the seventy birthday of Cixi. It is rare to be preserved because it is limited in circulation or not in circulation, so it has a high collection value. In the modern silver coins of our country, it is a very unique one.Collection value and appreciation space have great potential!
