The seventeen years of Chongzhen in the Ming Dynasty was an eventful autumn in Chinese history. In this year, the peasant uprising led by Li Zicheng, the king of Chuang, conquered Beijing and established political power. Emperor Chongzhen hanged himself on the coal mountain. In the old days of the Ming Dynasty, Wu Sangui was led into the pass and forced into Beijing by the Qing army. The king of Chuang had to lead the Dashun army to withdraw to the west, and the Manchu army took the opportunity to enter Beijing. In October of the same year, the capital of the Qing Dynasty was established in Beijing. Aixinjuelu Fulin, the emperor of the Qing Dynasty, became emperor of Beijing and changed his reign to Shunzhi. During the reign of Shunzhi, Tongbao in Shunzhi was not unified in its currency type. According to the inscription, it can be divided into five types, namely, the five types of Shunzhi. These five types define the copper coin types of the Qing Dynasty. There are five types of Tongbao in Shunzhi, which are imitated in Ming Dynasty; two types are imitated in Kaiyuan Tongbao and Hongwu Tongbao of Tang Dynasty; three types are imitated in Tang and Ming Dynasty. On this basis, the seal has a direct letter "one Li" to indicate the value of its currency; the four types have a Manchu inscription "Baoyuan and Baoquan" on the back, and the five types have a change in Manchu on the back of its four types, which are in Manchu, with one on the back Manchu and a Chinese, indicating the casting Bureau. There are 12 bureaus in total: Lin, Ning, yuan, Xuan, Tong, Jiang, Dong, he, Ji, Chang, Zhe and Shan. After that, each dynasty changed its year number once, and cast a new year number of money, then cast the five patterns as samples, from Kangxi Tongbao to Xuantong Tongbao, a total of ten. Besides, there are the unsettled Qixiang Tongbao cast in the early days of Tongzhi. Daoguang Tongbao is also a five pattern of Shunzhi Tongbao, and it tends to Jiaqing Tongbao. Therefore, Daoguang Tongbao has the shadow of Shunzhi and Jiaqing Tongbao.
The large Japanese silver coin is one of the most common foreign silver coins that flowed into China in modern times. Japan's initial coinage of the silver dollar meant to expel the two pillars and Yingyang, which were rampant in Japan at that time, and to unify the currency. Due to the small amount of dragon silver cast on the front page, people can't accept it for a while. As a result, the silver war ended in the defeat of Japan's Dragon ocean. From the seventh year to the thirtieth year of Meiji, Japan imitated the western fashion at that time and implemented the gold standard system. It issued a variety of gold coins with different denominations, and stopped casting silver dollars the next year. This measure caused a huge panic in Japan, selling silver dollars and buying gold. In order to prevent people from using Longyang to exchange gold in Japan, the Japanese government is going to sell about 2 million pieces on hand to China, Taiwan, North Korea and other places.

Although the Meiji silver coin of great Japan has gone through endless years, its lines are still clear, and the above signs also witness its historical accumulation. It has a very obvious historical transitional feature and an indescribable collection value.
In the past two years, the value of such ancient coins has been rising continuously. There are two reasons. One is that such coins have been bought by collectors a few years ago, and there are few left. The other is that after such coins were purchased in large quantities, the market once broke down and appeared again in the trade fairs. Collectors who confiscated them are willing to auction them at high prices. Last year and this year, the value of ancient coins has climbed to its peak under the intense hype and pursuit of the public. 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 as coins in the market, they have extraordinary collection value, which brings unexpected wealth to collectors.
