Sun Yat-sen's head is the origin of the commemorative coins of the founding of the Republic of China (commonly known as "little sun tou" or "Sun Xiao tou"). After the 1911 Revolution, the government of the Republic of China was established on January 3, 1912. Because the currency system has not yet been established, except for the silver coins of the Han Dynasty in Sichuan and the Chinese Yuan Bao in Fujian, most of the major mints still use the steel mould of the Qing Dynasty to cast silver coins for circulation.
[collection name]: one yuan of commemorative coins of the founding of the Republic of China
The design adopts the portrait of Sun Yat-sen, the great president, and later the general silver coin changes the pattern. Sun Yat-sen ordered the Ministry of finance to write, agreed to drum cast commemorative coins, and ordered the rest of the general silver coins to have new patterns, "in the middle, a model of five grains should be drawn, taking the meaning of the rich, the old and the people, and following the rules of urging the farmers to do business", ordered the Ministry of finance to quickly make new patterns, and ordered the mints of all provinces to drum cast according to the patterns. Soon after, the Ministry of Finance issued a new model to Jiangnan (Nanjing), Hubei, Guangdong and other mints, which was the origin of "the founding commemorative coins of Sun Yat Sen of the Republic of China". In recent years, the soaring price of silver dollar is also the key reason in addition to the involvement of the collection team to expand the strength of buyers. Royal International Marketing Department revealed that as soon as silver dollar goes on the market, it will be eaten into Wenzhou, Shanxi and other big buyers once and for all by powerful buyers. Although the intervention of institutions and big buyers will shake the silver dollar plate, it will rise steadily in the long run. The general collectors should take a long view and choose the opportunity to enter the market. The silver dollar, whose market performance has been steady, suddenly soared to the top. The price of the old silver dollar represented by "Sun Yat Sen like the six star version of one yuan silver coin on the founding commemorative coin of the Republic of China" has increased six times in five years. More experts say that citizens with old silver dollars should carefully preserve and actively collect them. This year will be a period of rapid appreciation of old silver dollars.
