In October 1911, the revolution of 1911 broke out. In December, Sichuan military government established the Han Dynasty Sichuan military government, which took over the Sichuan Mint branch in Chengdu. In order to meet the needs of the military and the road protection movement, the silver and copper coins of the Dragon model of the former Qing Dynasty were abolished, and the silver and copper coins of Sichuan were newly created. Since 1912, Sichuan Mint officially started to cast the "Han" silver and copper coins of Sichuan military government.
In the process of overthrowing the feudal dynasty and establishing the Republic of China, the military government had played an important role (although it later evolved into warlord melee). As a regional temporary government in a very special period, the military government has issued copper coins, such as the military government of North Lake and the military government of Sichuan Province. Only the Sichuan military government has issued silver dollars. These currencies were originally used to raise military pay and maintain government expenditure, and later became regional currencies. Therefore, the military government currency has the dual functions of military currency and civil currency, and its cultural and historical value is far better than ordinary currency.
This Sichuan copper coin has a diameter of 39.21mm and a weight of 19.98g. On the obverse, there are four characters of "Sichuan copper coin", on the upper margin of the bead circle, there are four characters of "made by the military government", on the lower margin, it is marked with the value of "when making one hundred coins", and the left and right are decorated with flower star patterns. There is a seal character "Han" in the big circle on the back, and there are dozens of horizontal and straight lines at the bottom of the character. Therefore, coin collectors call it "Han" character copper coin. There are 18 small circles around the circle of "Han", representing 18 provinces at that time.
This coin has regular writing style, harmonious layout, dignified and generous style, clear strokes, strong strokes, and space. The rust phase is observed, but the surface of the collection is dark, covered with rust, mottled and dense. The rust slurry is very tight and distributed naturally. This Sichuan copper coin is thick and hard to be collected.
In the process of overthrowing the feudal dynasty and establishing the Republic of China, the military government played an important role, making the historical significance of Sichuan copper coins more extraordinary. This copper coin is exquisitely cast, exquisitely crafted, extremely sculpted, and has a strong sense of relief. The traces of time add a sense of quietness and simplicity to it.
