DESCRIPTION

光绪二十二年北洋机器局造五角银币一枚,Y-64/LM-440,为该年度所铸各面值银币中数量最为稀少者,此枚打模深峻,字口清晰,背面龙鳞饱满,版底平整细腻,淡蓝色五彩之光,美轮美奂,品相顶级,PCGS MS66,为该公司评级纪录第一名,第二名评分为MS62
北洋机器局于光绪二十二年底开制银圆,根据海关报告记载,该年所造银币“计一圆3000枚,五角2500枚,二角12500枚,一角5000枚,半角7000枚”,年底已发行。次年中旬英文《京津泰晤士报》曾报道初期所造大小银圆乃当军饷发放,但一圆主币因成色不足而遭钱庄拒收,随后又刊出被收回重造,因此原本产量不多的北洋造光绪二十二年版系列银圆就更加稀少了,存世量更是屈指可数。 — 摘自《百年银圆》第18页。
