Sun Yat-sen is a great national hero and a great pioneer of China's democratic revolution. He initiated and led the 1911 Revolution, which completely overthrew the feudal dynasty rule that lasted more than 2000 years in China. In order to make the world remember Dr. Sun Yat-sen's great achievements, in the period of the Republic of China, various formats of commemorative silver coins with Mr. Sun Yat-sen's head were coined and issued. Among them, Sun Yat-sen is on the front, with a golden sun shining on the back, and sailing boats in the middle are the rarest in the 21 years of the Republic.
In the twenty-first year of the Republic of China, Sun Yat-sen, like a three-bird sailing boat, has a silver coin as one of the rare varieties in the silver coin collection. The silver coin was issued in the twenty-first year of the Republic of China (1932), minted and issued by the Shanghai Central Mint, commonly known as the "Three Birds'Coin".
The front of the silver coin is the side image of Sun Yat-sen's cultural costume, with the words "21 years of the Republic of China" above it and a double mast sailing boat at sea on the back. There are three flying seabirds above the boat. The sunrise and nine awn lines on the right side of the sailing boat imply "national transportation", "smooth sailing" and "rising sun in the east". "."
The silver coin is the first "ship-ocean" silver coin issued before the National Government abandoned the gold standard currency system, determined the silver standard currency system and promulgated the "Foundry Bill". It was once designated as a commemorative coin by the Ministry of Finance. Shortly after the issuance of the currency, tensions between China and Japan occurred. Some people said that the pattern implied the ominous omen of Japan's invasion of China. This coin aroused patriots'vigilance and doubts at that time because of the rising sun in the East on the back and the pattern of two sailing boats and three flying birds in the middle. Folk tradition: the rising sun on the right side of the sailing boat alludes to Japan (because the Japanese flag is the Sun Flag), and three birds on the boat allude to Japanese bombers, or are interpreted as flying away from the three eastern provinces. Due to Japan's invasion of China, the anti-Japanese patriotism of the Chinese people is rising. This currency is considered to be a disgrace to the national character, which is an ominous omen. At that time, the Kuomintang government also felt that "birds in the sky are the emblem of foreigners, above Chinese sailing boats." It thought it was inappropriate, so it immediately took back the silver coin to stop rumors spreading. At the same time, the new pattern was redesigned, the sunrise pattern and the three birds pattern were removed, and the new coin steel pattern was made in the early 22 years of the Republic of China. The Mint changed the front 21 years of the coin pattern to 22 years, and then issued it again. This is the 22 years of the Republic of China, which is very common today. Three years sailing a silver dollar. "Three Birds'Coin" has a shorter casting time, a smaller casting amount and a rarer handed down from generation to generation.
