Pr. Chinese Mint Coin Stamping Plates

Lot 553: Pr. Chinese Mint Coin Stamping Plates

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Stamping plates for Chinese silver dollar dated 3rd year of the Republic with the image of Yuan Shikai(1859-1916) was an important Chinese general and politician, famous for his influence during the late Qing Dynasty, his role in the events leading up to the abdication of the last Qing Emperor of China, his autocratic rule as the second President of the Republic of China (following Sun Yatsen), and his short-lived attempt to revive the Chinese monarchy, with himself as the "Great Emperor of China.". After Yuan Shikai had obtained complete control, new regulations were promulgated under which 280 million older silver coins were recalled and a new series issued bearing the portrait of Yuan Shikai himself. The dollar, known colloquially as the "Fatman Dollar", became the most widely circulated coin in China. Each bears the date reckoned from 1911 as the start of the Republic. The dies were prepared at the Tianjin General Mint and distributed to the provinces. As these dies became worn they were re-engraved, leading to many small local variations of design. It is said that over 300 million of these coins were issued. These coins survived his death in 1916 and were still being minted until 1922 or maybe later.<br><br>Important Grosse Pointe Shores Michigan Collection.
