Daqing silver ingot
The rare customs silver ingot in the silver currency of Qing Dynasty is not only the historical evidence of the invasion of China's sovereignty by the European and American powers in the late Qing Dynasty, but also the physical remains of the development process of China's modern finance, taxation, customs, shipping and many other fields. The silver ingot is well preserved as a whole, with natural wrapping and clear stamp characters, which has high research value and display value.
During the period of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom, the Qing Royal Family delegated military power, but the local policies could not be implemented in the complex situation because of the lack of financial power. After the Xinyou coup, financial power was delegated.
As a result, the traditional system of "sales by performance" is still in existence. Although the central government has made a hard apportionment to ensure the financial revenue, the remaining financial revenue of the quota is owned by the local government in disguised form.
This silver ingot is in good condition, with old way of wrapping pulp and clear font. It is a rare and unique product with great collection value.
