In the early days of the establishment of the Republic of China, the Beiyang government was very complicated at the time, and there were more than 100 kinds of Chinese and foreign currencies in circulation. The specifications were different, the circulation was chaotic, the conversion was cumbersome, and the people complained. At the same time, the Beiyang government also wanted to use currency restructuring to solve the military expenditure problem and decided to cast the national currency. In order to improve his dominance, Yuan Shikai took the opportunity to cast his head on the coin. "Yuandatou" came from this, because it was first cast in the Republic of China for three years, and he was also known as "Minsan". The first casting time of "Yuandatou" was three years of the Republic of China, and the currency was designated as the national currency of the Republic of China. Therefore, it has a very important position in the history of coins in China.

In the three years of the Republic of China, Yuandatou was a complete product and was old and natural. The front of the coin is a five-point image of Yuan Shikai's left side. The traditional Chinese version of the "Republic of China for three years" was cast. The word "people" was a little more. After the "year", there was no word creation, and it had a high historical and cultural research value. On the back is the pattern of Jiahe and the value of the currency.

Although "Yuandatou" is more common in the current collection market and the price is not too high, due to the relatively long time it has ceased to circulate, and the large amount of exchange in the early days of liberation, the amount of survival is not much. The loss in the circulation of the collection is also more, which determines the huge space for its rise. In addition, due to the law of value, the value of these coins has skyrocketed and the potential for appreciation has grown over time. This Yuandatou is very rare whether it is to look at its pulp, quality or color.
