Chutian Metropolis Daily In recent days, some people dumped a pile of construction rubbish on the edge of the Maoyangshan tea plantation near the provincial highway 243 in Xiaohe Town, Xiaochang County. On the morning of the previous day, a commuter worker in the town inadvertently pulled out some of the Qing Dynasty. The coins, the news came out, a lot of local villagers flocked out, carrying the hoe to dig the treasure.
On the morning of the previous day, the reporter went to the Maoyangshan tea plantation. The â€œtreasure huntâ€ is located near the road north of the tea plantation. There are rubbish and other construction garbage piled up here. There are 20 men and women, young and old, waving their hands or shovels. Children plan to plow the soil. Upon enquiry, these were villagers in nearby Shukou Village.
Mr. Zeng Maoyangshan tea shop owner told reporters that he contracted the 200 acres of mountain village in the mouth of the village, now just starting preparations for planting tea, the village of the town of Li Village, the village of the village recently demolition of old houses, there is no place to fall construction debris, He let Limou dump more than 10 cars on the roadside of the tea plant.
On the morning of the previous morning, when the Young Master of the Xiaohe class passed by here, he found that there was copper in the muck heap. He froze in the masonry pile for a while, and even smashed more than 300 pieces. As soon as we heard about the discovery of â€œold coinsâ€, villagers in Qiaokou Village swarmed and rummaged through the construction rubbish heap. Almost everyone digged 20 to 30 copper coins.
The reporters found that these copper elements are part of the word â€œGuangxu ingotâ€ and have a circle of English letters on the back. Most of the coins have been rusted and it is difficult to identify English content.
Why does the Qing Dynasty copper coins appear in the construction garbage dump? According to Mr. Zeng, the Lee family splitting old houses was a large household in the late Qing Dynasty and the Republic of China. It may be that his great-grandfather or his earlier ancestors left coins hidden in the wall. The Li family did not care about this time when the house was demolished. They pushed the wall down and the ancient coins were transported along with other construction waste. Later, Lee knew that after the incident came to the scene to see the big guy has been poached, it did not say anything.
Yesterday, the reporter consulted with the relevant collection experts that during the reign of Emperor Guangxu, the Qing government ordered a full set of coinage machines from the United Kingdom. As a result, coins were produced in Western colors, and many coins were minted. Since then, up to the Republic of China, copper coins have been manufactured in large quantities and have a large amount of deposits. Therefore, ordinary copper coins are of low value.
