Hubei Mint is one of the earliest provinces to coin silver coins after Guangdong. Zhang Zhidong, the governor of Guangdong and Guangdong provinces, was ordered to transfer to two lakes after the construction of a Guangdong mint. In 1893, he approved the establishment of a mint in Wuchang, Hubei Province. This silver coin was coined in 1895. When it was first coined, the two dragon beards on the left and right sides were different in length, which was different from those in other provinces. Later, due to the obstruction, the left and right dragon beards were changed to be longer when the coin was recast There are only a few of them have been recast without destruction, and most of them are worn or punched, which is extremely rare. The silver dollar quickly withdrew from circulation and was destroyed and recast. Very few of them remain. There should be five kinds of silver dragon pictures with different lengths on the left and right. At present, there are only three kinds of silver dragon pictures, i.e. 1 yuan, 2 jiao and 1 jiao. It is conceivable that the quantity is rare, and the good products are especially precious.
