光绪元宝是清朝光绪年间流通的货币之一,由两广总督张之洞率先引进英国铸币机器铸造银元和铜元，之后各省纷纷仿效。光绪三十二年(1906年)，清政府在天津成立户部造币总厂，铸造“光绪元宝”银元和“大清银币”。光绪三十一年，云南获得批准设立分厂，厂址于旧宝云局地址上，现今昆明市钱局街，机器设备由德国进口，技术工人从四川调入，祖模系向天津厂请领，于光绪三十三年八月铸币完工，开始铸造银币。初铸银币现俗称“老云南”，面值有七钱二分、三钱六分、一钱四分四厘。三个品种后铸背龙图无英文俗称“新云南”，面值有七钱二分、三钱六分、一钱四分四厘、七分二厘四个品种。“云南省造光绪元宝”，俗称“云南龙洋”，因银元背面一般铸有龙纹而得名。Guangxu Yuanbao was one of the currency circulating in Guangxu period of the Qing Dynasty. Zhang Zhidong, governor of Guangdong and Guangxi, took the lead in introducing the British coinage machine to cast silver and copper coins, and then the provinces followed suit. In 1906, the Qing government set up a minting factory in Tianjin to make “Guangxu Yuanbao” silver coins and “Qing silver coins”. In the thirty first year of Guangxu, Yunnan was approved to set up a branch factory. The factory site was located at the address of the old Baoyun Bureau. Now, qianju street of Kunming City, machinery and equipment were imported from Germany, technical workers were transferred in from Sichuan, zumo system applied to Tianjin factory. In August of the thirty third year of Guangxu, the Mint was completed and silver coins were cast. The first silver coins are now commonly known as “old Yunnan”, with a face value of seven yuan and two Fen, three yuan and six Fen, one yuan and four Fen and four Fen. There are four varieties with a face value of seven yuan two Fen, three yuan six Fen, one yuan four Fen four Li and seven Fen two Li. “Yunnan made Guangxu Yuanbao”, commonly known as “Yunnan Longyang”, is named after the dragon pattern on the back of the silver dollar.

Up to now, the number has been extremely limited, so it has an indescribable value of art collection. This group of five coins is made in Guangxu Yuanbao, Kuping three money and six Fen silver coins. The coin face: the four characters of Kaiti “made in Yunnan” are cast on the top, the value of Kuping three money and six Fen is cast on the bottom, and the four characters of “Guangxu Yuanbao” are read directly in the center. The Qian text is extremely exquisite and atmospheric, and the structure of the shelves is balanced and stretched. The paste on the surface of this coin is natural, which gives a sense of vicissitudes of life. Qian Bei: in the middle of the picture, there are 16 flower stars on each side. This flat dragon picture is the most exquisite, the most perfect sculptor and the most intense relief type among all the Dragon foreign designs in China. The mirror surface is flat and smooth, and the lines of patterns are very clear.
