拍品描述 民国廿五年广东省造一仙样币。NGC及PCGS评鑑中最高分。极罕及受欢迎的版别。陈济棠陆军一级上将掌政时发行。正面图案为五羊凝视山峦,两行铭文于上,装饰边框围绕中心孔。反面设计较为简单,左有禾稻,铭文于右,配以五羊图(代表广东省政权)围绕中央方孔,外以花藤围绕。在广东设计及准备,这些样币亦被广称为"五羊钱",可追溯回五羊传说。此版别从未正式发行,因陈省长当时其最大的支持者去世,他失去势力被迫请辞,于1936年7月逃逸至香港。陈济棠于1931年成为广东省省长,有南天王之称。虽然最后被迫下野,但陈济棠受人爱戴,亦为广东省发展作出重大贡献。他尤其著重广东的城市化发展及将公共教育制度现代化,包括为国立中山大学在石牌建设新校。广东人民称他在政期间为广东省的黄金时代。此枚铸造精细,表面光滑,温暖的棕色包浆,正下方隐见原厂红铜色。对中国样币、铜币及机币币藏家而言,为不可多得的一枚。

CHINA. Kwangtung. "Five Goats" Pattern Cent, Year 25 (1936). PCGS SP-64+ BN Secure Holder.CL-KT.28; CCC-18; KM-Pn28; Duan-0146. Single finest graded at either NGC or PCGS. VERY RARE and popular issue. Issued by Governor Chen Jitang. The obverse depicts five goats grazing in a mountainous pass, two line inscription above, decorative border around central hole, all within a slanted quasi-Greek border. The reverse is more simplistic, displaying a stalk of rice left, legend right, with Wuyang diagram (representing the Kwangtung regime) surrounding the central hole, all within floral vine border. Prepared and struck in Kwangtung (Guangdong), these pattern-only issues are also referred to as "Wuyang" cents, from the ancient legend of the Wuyang fairy. They never made it into full production as Governor Chen was forced to resign and fled to Hong Kong in July 1936 after his biggest supporter Hu Manmin passed away a couple of months earlier. Chen became governor in 1931 and was fondly called the Celestial King of the South. Despite being forced out of his position, he was very well liked and made enormous contributions to the development of his province. He was instrumental in modernizing the cities and also oversaw the establishment of modern public school systems, including prestigious colleges and universities such as Sun Yat-Sen University. The people of his province referred to this period as the Golden Age of Kwangtung. Well struck as would be expected with smooth glossy surfaces displaying a attractive rich warm brown patina throughout with just a hint of original mint red at 6 oclock. A treat for the specialist of Chinese patterns, copper issues or republican issues.
