Story

The dollar was among the first milled coinage produced in Imperial China at the Kwangtung Mint. Its output was intended to replace the Spanish and Mexican 8 reales circulating in the country. To this end, these coins were at a slightly higher silver content than the foreign interlopers. Unfortunately Gresham’s Law kicked-in and the new heavier dollars were promptly hoarded or melted-down.

Despite the failure of these dollars to achieve their desired end, their design provided the standard for issues from all Chinese provinces during 1890-1907.
