Yuan Shikai (1859 - 1916) was a famous politician and militarist in modern Chinese history and leader of Beiyang warlords. The word comfort Pavilion (also as comfort court), known as Rongan, the owner of the heart-washing pavilion, Han, Henan Xiangcheng people, the old name is "Yuan Xiangcheng".
Yuan Shikai originated in Korea in his early years and trained the new army at Tianjin Station after returning home. During the New Deal in the late Qing Dynasty, the modernization reform was actively promoted. During the 1911 Revolution, Emperor Puyi of the Qing Dynasty was forced to abdicate and overthrow the Qing Dynasty in a peaceful way, becoming the interim president of the Republic of China. In 1913, he suppressed the Second Revolution and was elected as the first President of the Republic of China in the same year. In 1914, he promulgated the Law on the Covenant of the Republic of China. In December 1915, he proclaimed himself Emperor and changed the name of China to the Empire of China. He established the Yuan Hongxian, which was historically called the "Hongxian Monarchy". This action was opposed by all parties and triggered the movement for the protection of the country. Yuan Shikai had to announce the abolition of the monarchy after he had been emperor for 83 days.
Silver coins originated in the 15th century and were first minted in Europe. They are commonly known as "foreign money", "lace money" or "ocean". They are the general name of silver coins. Silver yuan is an imported product. It first entered China in the Ming Dynasty, but a large inflow occurred after the reign of Qianlong in the Qing Dynasty. There are some silver coins on the market, such as Sanfan Silver Coin, Bamboo Silver Coin and Gansu Maoyuan Datou, which issue fewer silver dollars. Among them, Yuan Shikais head silver coin, commonly known as "Yuan Datou Yinyuan", is the most widely spread, influential and surviving silver coin.
This "three-year Yuan Datou" silver coin of the Republic of China is 3.9 cm in diameter. On the front side of the coin, Yuan Shikais side image is inscribed with the words "Nine Years of the Republic of China". On the back, there are two intersecting ears of rice with the words "one circle" in the center. Because it is a real currency, between peoples recognition of precious metals, and a strong sense of historical and cultural identity, so the collection is not in the minority. "Yuan Datou" has a strong cash flow ability, which is also one of the factors favored by Tibetans.
