台湾老公银饼。 颇<strong>罕见</strong>的历史版别，中国首铸的银克朗。带多枚戳记，在此版中常见，但无损其魅力及历史价值。原本是为充当发放军饷之用，这种台湾老公银饼很快获得公众的认可。主要是因含银的成份高，约有 98% 。此时最通行的西班牙本洋成色是 0.903，刚刚超过 90%。正面是一位寿星及"库平柒弍"字样。这代表起初是採取后来成为标准的 "七钱二分" 。
CHINA. Taiwan. "Old Man" Dollar, ND (1838-50). PCGS Genuine--Chopmark, EF Details. L&M-319; K-1; CH-25-3. A fairly <strong>RARE </strong>and historical type, essentially serving as the first struck silver crown in China. Rather heavily chopmarked as is often the case, but nevertheless full of charm and importance.
Initially designed as a form of military payment, the Taiwan Dollar quickly gained the approval of the people and grew in popularity. This was primarily due to its high silver content, approximately 98% fine. At this time, the Spanish 8 Reales were the most widely accepted coin being 0.903, just over 90% fine. The obverse depicts the god of longevity, with characters that signify "Seven Two by the Treasury Scales." This represents the first depiction of what later became the standard "7 Mace 2 Candareens."
