[Guangzhou Dehong] Guangxu Yuanbao was the first currency imported into overseas technology during the Guangxu period of the Qing dynasty. Because the back of the silver coin was generally cast with a dragon pattern, it was named “Long Yang.” Guangxu Yuanbao is a physical object left behind by currency history.

At the end of the 19th century, the Qing’s national power was getting weaker and weaker. While all the great powers were invading China, they were all engaged in searching for China’s economic wealth. At that time, China, especially the coastal areas of the trading ports, had begun to circulate modern currency coins. After the coin appeared in China, it was commonly known as the silver dollar or the ocean at that time. The most typical of the Qing Dynasty was Guangxu Yuanbao and Daqing silver coin.
