Looking at the coin auction market in recent years, there are several phenomena worthy of people’s attention: first, ancient money treasures with orderly inheritance and quality assurance are particularly favored, and collectors are flocking to them even if the price is higher. Second, the rubbings collected by famous scholars have sprung up. In the past few years, people paid more attention to the real coins and did not pay much attention to the materials. But recently, the carriers of coin culture (such as rubbings, books and other materials) have gradually attracted attention. Third, the appearance has been paid more and more attention. In the past, the main types of coins were collected, and they were not so picky about their appearance. However, in recent years, the quality of coins has been greatly improved.
Compared with the sluggish domestic art market in the past two years, the coin auction is obviously much more active this year, with the excellent products of various plates appearing one after another, and the transaction price of rare coins has increased steadily. Especially, the coins of the Ming and Qing Dynasties and the Republic of China have sprung up, and are favored by high-end collectors due to the scarcity of stocks, which has become a new hot spot in the coin auction market.
After more than ten years of cultivation, the money market represented by the machine-made coins has finally been brilliant. Even compared with the overseas market, the current mainland market is not inferior. Collectors and investors have richer knowledge and broader vision, and profound changes have taken place in their concepts. They pursue more stringent collections. On the premise of rarity and rarity, they pay more attention to the perfect appearance and future value of collections.
Copper coins are a large category of coin collection, which has always been the concern of many collectors. Different editions of copper coins have unique charm and are worthy of deep appreciation. In the online auction of coins, these ancient copper coins are very popular and become the focus of many buyers.
1911年辛亥革命胜利后,清帝退位,中华民国成立。中国民主主义革命的先驱者孙中山就任中华民国临时大总统,并在颁布的“临时大总统令”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 “中华民国开国纪念币”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。这就是“中华民国开国纪念币” 铜元的由来。 无庸置疑,这种铜元的币名很明确,就是“中华民国开国纪念币”。根据钱币收藏界的一般共识,对一种钱币,应该把可以明确币名或显示钱币最主要特征的一面称为“面”,而把其相对的另一面称为“背”,据此我们应该把此币最能区别于前朝铜元,并具有鲜明的划时代革命和进步意义的有“中华民国开国纪念币”(以下简称开国纪念币)字样的一面称为面,而把其对应记值的另一面称为背。
After the victory of the 1911 Revolution, the Qing emperor abdicated and the Republic of China was founded. Sun Yat Sen, the pioneer of China’s democratic revolution, took office as the provisional president of the Republic of China. In his “provisional presidential decree”, he proposed that “a new model should be published and commemorative coins should be forged”. Subsequently, two mints in Wuchang and Nanjing took the lead in casting copper coins of the founding of the Republic of China, mainly in the denomination of 10 Wen, which were issued in large quantities to replace the copper coins of the Qing Dynasty. This is the origin of the “commemorative coin of the founding of the Republic of China”. There is no doubt that the name of this copper coin is very clear, which is “commemorative coin of the founding of the Republic of China”. According to the general consensus in the field of coin collection, for a kind of coin, the side that can identify the name of the coin or show the most important characteristics of the coin should be called “face”, and the opposite side should be called “back”. Therefore, we should distinguish this coin from the copper coin of the previous dynasty, One side of the inscription “Republic of China founding commemorative coin” (hereinafter referred to as the founding commemorative coin) is called face, and the other side of its corresponding value is called back.
Because the Double Flag coins were produced in the period of the Republic of China, the Republic of China only existed for several decades in Chinese history. Therefore, during the period of war and frequent civil wars, the coins can still be completely preserved after endless years. It is not easy to have high cultural relics collection value, historical and cultural value and art appreciation value.
