In October 1911, under the historical background of the 1911 Revolution, Sichuan Province declared its independence and established the Sichuan military government of the Han Dynasty. Yin Changheng took the post of minister of military and political affairs, and organized the military government after being promoted as the governor. In order to meet the needs of the military and the road protection movement, as well as to maintain government expenditure, since 1912, Chengdu Mint in Sichuan Province, by order of the military government, changed the old model of the dragon shaped copper yuan in the former Qing Dynasty, engraved the new model of the copper yuan in the Republic of China, officially started to cast "the Chinese character silver yuan of Sichuan copper coin made by the military government", and at the beginning of its founding, only 10 and 20 coins were issued. In May of the same year, another 50 Wen was added. In the same year, more than 60.55 million ten Wen copper coins, 12.47 million twenty Wen copper coins and 9.35 million fifty Wen copper coins were cast. "The military government made Sichuan copper coins" is a product of the 1911 Revolution. In December 1911, the "Chengdu mutiny" took place. The Sichuan military government, with Yin Changheng and Luo Lun as the chief and deputy governors, replaced the 12 day old Sichuan military government. At the beginning of the establishment of the new Sichuan military government, it was faced with a financial dilemma of increasing demands and spending. The military government quickly took over the Sichuan Chengdu mint and decided to cast "Sichuan copper coins" in case of emergency.
As the circulation rate of Sichuan copper coins is not high, they can only be traded in Sichuan, so the circulation range is very narrow, resulting in the low circulation of Sichuan copper coins. The economic law and collection are always based on the law of "rare things are precious". As a special currency of special historical period and local regime, military government currency has dual functions of military currency and civil currency. It is the product of history, has irreplaceable cultural relic value, and is the witness of history.
The design of this coin is clear and free from abrasion, its surface is smooth and smooth, and its edge is free from obvious impact marks. It can basically be regarded as a good product. There are four characters of "Sichuan copper coins" in the central pearl circle on the obverse of the copper coins, which are arranged up, down, left and right, with hibiscus pattern on the heart. The upper margin of the bead circle is written with four characters "made by the military government", and the lower margin is written with the words "when making money, 100 words", indicating the currency value, and decorated with flower star patterns on the left and right. There is a seal character "Han" in the central circle on the back of the coin, and there are dozens of horizontal and straight lines at the bottom of the character, so the coin collectors call it "Han" character copper coin. There are 18 small circles around the circle of "Han", representing 18 provinces at that time. The 18 small circles around the word "Han" are linked together, implying that the people of 18 provinces unite to fight for "expelling Tartars and restoring China". It bears the distinctive time mark of the revolution of 1911, and witnesses the magnificent history of the Republic of China. Therefore, it has different collection values.
