In the first year of Kangxi (1662), the Qing government ordered to stop casting the "Shunzhi Tongbao" money of the previous generation, and recast the "Kangxi Tongbao" money. Throughout the reign of Emperor Kangxi, there were 24 minting bureaus across the country. Due to the influence of the smelting workbook and the private coinage of coins at that time, each piece of Kangxi money was once worth four cents, one cent, and seven cents, respectively. As a result, the three types of large, medium and small we see today were produced. "Kangxi Tongbao" coins of different weights.
Kangxi Tongbao can be divided into two categories according to the characters on the back: one is Manchu money imitating the "Shunzhi Four Styles". Qian Bei's Manchu "Baoquan" and "Baoyuan" are left-reading, and are made by the two departments of households and workers. The other type is Manchu and Chinese money imitating the "Shunzhi Five Styles". Kangxi Tongbao has Xiaoping and Dang ten money. Qian Wenzhen's script, direct reading. Except for Baoyuan and Baoquan Second Bureaus, which use the Manchu Discipline Bureau, all provinces use the Manchu characters as the Disciplinary Bureau, with Manchu characters on the left and Chinese characters on the right. The minting money of each province is Xiaoping. The ten coins were cast by the Baoyuan Bureau. Some say it is money for opening the furnace, and some say it is money for the town treasury. It should belong to the series of spending money and should not be used for money.
The inscriptions on the backs of Kangxi coins are in Manchu, except for the Baoquan and Baoyuan bureaus set up by the Ministry of Industry and the Ministry of Households. For the corresponding Chinese character record. For the convenience of collection and research, later generations compiled the bureau names of the Manchu and Chinese censuses and formed a rhyming and smooth Kangxi Qian "recitation poem". Poem Cloud: Tong Fu Lin Dongjiang, Xuanyuan Su Jichang. Nanhe, Ningguang and Zhejiang, Taigui, Shaanxi, Yunzhang. This poem includes the twenty innings of the "Kangxi Tongbao" Qian Bei Manchu in Chinese. Therefore, some people call Kangxi's set of money "Twenty Poems". Later, the word "Gong" appeared (Gansu Gongchang Bureau), and some people said that there were also Kangxi money from Qiang Bureau such as "Secret", "Chuan", "Gui" and "Xi". But so far we have only seen the words "Gong" and "West", and the others have not been seen in kind, and there is still some controversy about this. Kangxi Tongbao is also commonly known as Luohan money. According to legend, it was cast by Nian Gengyao melted gold Luohan, and the color is golden yellow. Among them, there are palace coins decorated with Qing Dynasty and dragon and phoenix patterns, which are loved by collectors. In addition, from the 60th birthday of Kangxi, the Fujian Baofu Bureau casted the congratulatory money with the back-piercing stems and branches, and it was one grade every year until the Emperor Kangxi in 1722. It took ten years and a total of ten grades, which is rare in the world. There is also a carved mother, and the money is passed down from generation to generation. During the Ming and Qing Dynasties, the rise of Shanxi merchants and Shanxi bankers was well-known both at home and abroad.
Especially in the Qing Dynasty, the development of ticket numbers, so that there are still a lot of ancient Qing Dynasty coins in Shanxi. It is also said that there were many coin minting craftsmen in Shanxi in the Qing Dynasty who worked in the Beijing Money Bureau, and brought back a large number of beautiful coins to Shanxi for various reasons. And those beautiful coins were sample coins or mother coins at that time, and now they are all extremely rare varieties. Through more than 20 years of private excavations, it is true that the rare coins of the Qing Dynasty discovered by the people in Shanxi are far larger than those in other provinces.
With the passage of time and the change of dynasties, ancient coins have also been quietly lost and gradually reduced, and ancient coins have the characteristics of unrepeatable. Therefore, people gradually realize the significance and value of coin collection. The collection of ancient coins has created a mythical miracle. Although ancient coins are no longer used in the market as coins, they have extraordinary collection value, thus giving Collectors bring unexpected wealth.
There are many ways to invest in coins. Ancient coins have always been sought after, especially coins that are rare in the market. Due to the difficulty of the craftsmanship, the high artistic value, and the reduction in the number of handed downs, if you buy the real product, there is a large room for appreciation. Kangxi Tongbao has a long history since its release, and very few can be handed down, so now the collectors have a clearer understanding of Kangxi Tongbao, and they are more and more popular.
