    Description

    Kwangtung. Kuang-hsü Specimen Dollar ND (1890-1908) SP64 NGC, Guangzhou (Canton) mint, KM-Y203, L&M-133, Kann-26. This issue began a major change in the design of the "Dragon" Dollar. Previously, the English legends appeared on the obverse of the coins. This policy met with opposition, both in the general public and also among the minting authorities. This Kwangtung issue was the first issue to reverse the English legend from the obverse (legend side) to the reverse (dragon side.) A small number of presentation Specimens (or Proofs) were struck, and later the type was struck in large quantities for general circulation. This Choice example is sharply struck, with only a few tiny marks. The fields are mirrored, and reflective, and a hint of golden patina enhances the near-Gem appearance. Only two pieces have been certified finer by NGC.

    1890-1908年廣東省造光緒元寶七錢二分銀樣。SP64 NGC, 廣東造幣廠。這枚的發行為"龍幣"的設計帶來了很大的變化。 在此以前,英語文字都出現在硬幣的正面上。 這種做法在大眾和造幣當局都遭到反對。這枚由廣東省造的,便是第一枚將英語文字印在銀幣的反面(即龍圖案的一面)。當時只鑄造了少量樣幣,後來則大量鑄造以用作一般流通。 此枚令人讚嘆,只有幾個極輕微瑕疵。 底版鏡光閃亮,帶一絲金黃色包漿,近乎完美的品相。目前只有兩枚由NGC評分高於此幣。
