    令人驚嘆的Gem級喜敦廠造「七三反版」半圓樣幣!

    1889年廣東省造光緒元寶三錢六分五釐銀樣幣。SP67 NGC,
    喜敦造幣廠。七三反版系列。另一枚夢幻的例子。正面呈完美鏡面,背面展示原光及精湛的外觀,令人讚嘆!喜敦造幣廠一貫的完整印壓,精美深刻,龍像立體精緻,氣勢凌人。龍上鐫有中字「廣東省造」,下方則為面值「庫平三錢六分五釐」。硬幣頂部可見淡淡的紅棕色包漿,富有味道。這枚也是NGC及PCGS所認證的喜敦造幣廠出產的樣幣中品相最上乘的一枚。出自: Chinese Family Collection

    當時兩廣總督張之洞奏請試辦廣東錢局,於1887年獲准成立,成為中國第一座以現代造幣機器印製錢幣,及世界規模最大的造幣廠。首批樣幣由英倫偉恩設計雕刻。這一套銀樣在喜敦造幣廠鑄好後被送到中國駐倫敦大使館。七三反版這名稱反映了其含銀重量,而這亦成為了這品種逼不得已退出市場流通的原因。

    局方當時設計這系列,原打算藉錢幣的發行而取代當時在中國境內流通的外國銀元。唯其含銀量比七錢二分稍多,使用時需計算兌換,不受商民接受和歡迎,最終整個系列被回收。雖只曾短暫流通,這系列作為第一批使用現代化機器印壓的錢幣,所採用的幡龍設計更成為了後來各省鑄造龍幣的範本,於中國造幣歷史上有著極深的意義和價值。
