The copper coins of the Qing Dynasty, in 1904, imitated the copper coins of Hubei Province, and changed the five characters "made by Sichuan official bureau" to "made in Sichuan Province". In July 1905, the Qing government ordered all provinces to change the "Guangxu Yuanbao" copper coins into "big Qing copper coins", and to add the abbreviations in yin or yang to the center of the coins. There were three kinds of copper coins in Sichuan Province, namely Dang 5, Dang 10 and Dang 20 with the center of "Chuan". In September of the same year, the Hubu Department of the Qing government was renamed "Du branch", but the inscription of "Da Qing copper coin" cast by the copper yuan bureaus of all provinces still used the word "Hubu". Only the Ji inscription of the copper coin of the first year of Xuantong in Sichuan was changed to "Du branch". As a result, Sichuan copper yuan became one of the characteristics of the national copper yuan. A branch in charge of financial affairs in Qing Dynasty. In the Qing Dynasty, Hubu was responsible for financial management. In 1906, the Yamen of the Ministry of finance was reorganized and renamed as Du branch. The civil affairs in charge were assigned to the Ministry of civil affairs, and the officials in charge were Duzhi ministers, and the left and right servants, the right and left ministers, the left and right counsellors, and the second Hall of Chengzheng, Caocang, taxation, guanxi, Tongfu and kucang were set up Ten departments, such as low salary, military pay, system and use, accounting, and gold and silver Treasury.
The difference between this copper coin of Qing Dynasty and the common copper coin of Qing Dynasty is that there is "Du branch" on the obverse rather than "Hubu". In fact, these two names represent the institutions in charge of financial affairs. Only in the 32nd year of the reign of Emperor Guangxu of the Qing Dynasty, the Hubu was renamed as the Du branch due to the reorganization. Compared with the name of "Hubu", the existence time of "Du branch" is very short, and the reign time of emperor Xuantong is only three years. It can be imagined that the rarity of this copper coin of Du branch in Xuantong year is immeasurable compared with other editions.
In the center of the coin, there are four Chinese characters of "Da Qing copper coin", embedded with a small character "Chuan" to represent the place name. At the top is the Manchu character "Da Qing copper coin", with the year "Jiyou" on both sides, and "Du branch" in the middle of the edge, and "Dang Qian 20 Wen" at the bottom; the central part of the coin is Panlong, the upper end is "Xuantong Nian Zao", and the lower part is "Tai Ching" Ti kuocoppercoin. Its money bread pulp is firm, circulation trace is obvious, quite royal style. This kind of copper coin is rare and rare, and it has great collection value
