In 1910 (the second year of Xuantong), the coinage machine purchased by Yunnan to the local Asians was transferred to Kunming, and the coin was cast. The front of the coin is the Chinese and Manchu "Xuan Tong Yuan Bao" words, the periphery of the "Geng Yu spring Yunnan made", decorated with flowers on both sides, squatting "Kuping seven money two points" six words. The back of the dragon is in the middle, the periphery is in English, and the flowers are on both sides. The coin is a trial casting coin and the caster is fine.
The Yunnan Mint was officially put into operation in Kunming in 1907, casting silver coins and copper cents. After several years of operation, the quality of the products is good and bad, and the standards of color and casting are unstable. At the same time, the management's instructions to the central government are often violated by the government, which makes the market less confident. Therefore, only a few of the products are accepted by the market. In 1910, the Mint minted a small amount of Xuan Tong Geng's spring seven money and two silver coins, and the rotation stopped production due to the spread of revolutionary activities. In the following year (1911), the Wuchang Revolution successfully overthrew the Manchu Dynasty. The silver coin has a very short time in the city, and I believe that only a small amount of it has been passed down to the world.
In the spring of Yunnan, the Yunnan-made Xuan Tong Yuan Bao Ku Ping seven money two cents silver coins, one of China's modern silver coins ten treasures. It is not surprising that Chinese coins are not enough for the dry years, but the seasons are unique. The Yunnan Mint continued to cast the words "Geng Yu Spring" on the silver coin. Geng Biao is the second year of Xuantong, that is, 1910, and the spring refers to January to March. The engraving of "Geng Bing Spring" on Xuantong Yuanbao Silver Coin is intended to emphasize that this coin was cast before the promulgation of the "Monetary System". However, the Qing government still investigated and dealt with this practice of the Yunnan Mint, and the “Geng Yu Yunnan Yunnan Xuan Tong Yuan Bao” was destroyed. A very small number of silver coins that have flowed out have become the great treasures of Chinese modern silver coins.
