Yuan Tou was one of the main currencies in circulation during the Republic of China. "Yuan Tou" is the colloquial name for yuan Shikai's series of COINS, or, to be more precise, "Yuan Shikai's jiahe silver coin on the back".
In order to rectify the currency system, the Beiyang government, in February of the third year of the Republic of China (1914), promulgated the "national currency regulations" 13, decided to implement the silver standard system. The Coinage Regulations stipulate: "A unit of six coinage silver at a price of four quarters and eight percent shall be named as the round", "a dollar silver with a total weight of seven cents, eight or nine silver, one copper", and "a dollar silver with an unlimited number of USES", that is, a dollar silver as the standard currency with unlimited legal tender. According to this regulation, in December 1914 and February 1915, the coinage general factory and the Jiangnan Mint opened a dollar coin, engraved with the head of Yuan Shikai, commonly known as "Yuan Tou coin" or "Yuan Tou head".
