拍品描述 光绪二十二年北洋机器局造一圆银币。(珍稀度☆☆☆☆)光绪二十二年製,即是北洋造币厰开铸的首年,珍罕。北洋造币厰运作初期,製钱币值採用十进制,直到光绪二十五年即1899年,才採用其时大部分造币厰所用的库平七钱二分单位。此拍品面值一圆,是该段时间内北洋造银币的最高面值。据中国海关记载,1866年一圆仅发行了3,000枚。由于其铸量少,时间早,流传至今的屈指可数,品相出众者更是凤毛麟角。北洋造币厰在义和团运动中遭焚毁,后重建成为天津造币厰,承担起为全国铸造钱币的重任。本拍品铸打深峻,虹彩包浆,光泽闪烁,赏心悦目。NGC MS-62.CHINA.

Chihli (Pei Yang Arsenal). Dollar, Year 22 (1896). NGC MS-62.L&M-439; K-181; Y-65; WS-0603; Chang Foundation-pg. 114#51; H.Chang-CH9; Wenchao-pg. 401#606 (rarity 4 stars). This VERY RARE Dollar struck in the twenty-second year of Kuang Hsu represents the first year of issue for the Pei Yang Arsenal. During the mints first few years of operations, coinage denominations were assigned using the decimal system. It was not until the twenty-fifth year of Kuang Hsu (1899) that the mint would designate the denomination based on the 7 Mace 2 Candareens system as used by most mints. The Dollar offered here represents the largest denomination produced by the mint at this time. According to contemporary Chinese customs reports, the mintage for the 1896 Dollar was only 3,000 pieces. Due to its low mintage and the early nature of its issue, very few examples have survived, especially in nice condition. The original Pei Yang Arsenal mint was destroyed during the Boxer Rebellion only to be later rebuilt, eventually becoming the Tientsin mint which served as the main mint for all of China. Bold strike with multi-color iridescent tone. Highly lustrous with wonderful eye appeal.
