[Guangzhou Dehong] In the late Qing Dynasty, the Qing government introduced the Western coin management system and adopted the Western mechanical printing and casting mechanism coins. The Guangxu Yuanbao came into being. Guangxu Yuanbao occupied a dominant position in the commodity circulation market at that time, and gradually withdrew from the historical stage with the end of the feudal dynasty. In a certain period of time, due to historical baptism and the outbreak of war, the Guangxu ingot gradually became more rare. As the honorary product of the modern mechanism currency, Guangxu Yuanbao has a very high cultural connotation and collection value. Now it has become a major category in the coin market. The market value has been rising year by year and has been cherished by collectors.
