    珍罕「邊葉陰紋」宣統三年反龍銀幣

    宣統三年(1911)大清壹圓銀樣幣。SP62+ PCGS。 天津造幣廠,反龍,邊葉陰紋版。

    清朝光緒未年,清政府為整治各地分散鑄幣而引起的問題,致力推行幣制的整合與改革。宣統二年頒布《幣制則例》,造幣總廠根據規定試制以圓爲單位的大清銀幣,但未有被採納發行。宣統三年又重新制模,試制大清銀幣,主幣的蟠龍圖案版別豐富很多,計有長須龍、短須龍、大尾龍、反龍、曲須龍及簽字版等版別。

    「其中"反龍"特別之處在于龍身呈"乙"字形狀,自龍頭向右再左旋,龍尾朝右隱沒在雲中,由龍尾方向不同而得名。又可由正面兩側花葉的不同,分為數量較多的"邊葉陽紋"與稀少罕見的"邊葉陰紋"兩種,後者製作較為精美,版底呈現出類似鏡面般的光澤。

    "邊葉陰紋"的存世量,目前除上海博物館及美國錢幣協會(ANS)博物館各收藏一枚(見2000年出版之《施嘉幹先生舊藏中外錢幣》目錄第64號及ANS藏品編號0000.999.26526)外,其餘在公開拍賣會出現的,包括原鴻禧美術館舊藏在內的僅知三枚,稀少程度可想而知。」 引自《珍稀品種中的罕見版式-大清銀幣反龍陰葉》孫浩著

    幣款設計上,上方印有滿文,下方表明年份,正中則為「大清銀幣」。反龍尾部於三點鐘位置,與同年所發行大部分龍尾於左側的設計不同。這枚品相優秀卓越,鑄工精湛,可見反龍身上龍鱗飽滿分明,栩栩如生,正背面深峻雕刻保存良好,緞面光澤,裹有淡琥珀金色包漿。這枚定必深得各藏家的鍾愛,於現場掀起一場熱烈競投!

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
