拍品描述 光绪二十九年户部光绪元宝库平一钱铜币样。大坂造币厂。 铜质币未获收录。铸打纤毫毕现,细节明晰完整,字体端丽。版底光洁,整体颜色呈现红褐偏黄,图文高铸处呈现悦目棕色。未经人工扰动的纯原状态,值得跻身高端集藏。

据耿爱德著述,政府曾有意改革币制,参考金本位,设置币值为一两、伍钱、三钱、一钱伍分。然而,北洋铸币厂毁于1900-01年的义和团拳乱,而天津新中央铸币厂直到1904年才开铸,该计划终告流产。其时,大坂铸币厂承造新系列模具和币样,已知同款币样由至少三种金属铸造:金、银、铜,均极尽稀贵,受藏家追捧。

CHINA. Bronze Mace Pattern, Year 29 (1903). Osaka Mint. NGC MS-64 Red Brown. cf. L&M-4; cf. K-930; cf. KM-Pn291; Hsu-4. This metal type not listed. Exhibiting a needle sharp strike clearly defining the most intricate crisp details and blocked off letters and calligraphy. The smooth clean fields displaying an attractive tawny-red color while hints of brunette hues grace the tops of the devices. A wholly original representative of the type with a great look destine for an advanced collection. According to Edward Kann, this series was part of a projected currency reform based on the gold standard consisting of 1 Tael, 5 Mace, 3 Mace, 1 Mace and 5 Candareens, but never came to fruition. As the Pei Yang Arsenal was destroyed during the Boxer Rebellion (1900-01) and the new central mint at Tientsin was not in full production until 1904, the Osaka Mint was commissioned to prepare dies and samples of the new proposed coinage. These issues are know in at least three different metal types including gold, silver and bronze all of which should be considered EXTREMELY RARE and highly sought after.
