Sichuan Copper Coin Army evolved from Sichuan Copper Yuan coins. In the early Copper Yuan and Qing Dynasty, Guangxu 28 years (1902), the governor of Sichuan, Cen Chunxuan, first proposed founding Copper Yuan. In June of 1903, the Sichuan Copper Yuan Bureau was built. Its scale was not large. It was only used for repairing the waste machines that had purchased and cast small amounts of money. The workshop was a copper press and an old copper coin factory of the Machinery Bureau. The casting materials were the margin slag of the bullet shell of the Machinery Bureau and the surplus copper of the Baochuan Bureau. "Dangwu" and "Dangshi" copper yuan are cast in 96% copper, 0.1% lead and other proportions. The cast copper is pure copper with good quantity. As a result, Sichuan Copper Yuan has become one of the characteristics of the world Copper Yuan. The purpose of the coins issued by Sichuan Military Journal is to raise military salaries and maintain expenditure. At the same time, it is also to meet the needs of the road protection movement. Therefore, the "Han" copper coins have the attributes of military coins and civilian coins.
The military Sichuan copper coins were minted in June, 1903, and the French coins began to circulate in November, 1935 before gradually withdrawing from circulation. In 1900, a round porous copper coin (copper yuan) was coined in Guangdong. The following year, copying was permitted in coastal provinces along the Yangtze River. Sichuan Province has set up Sichuan Copper Yuan Bureau in Chengdu, casting five or ten denominations of copper coins, and adding twenty in July. In April 1912, the template of Daqing copper coin was abolished and the "Han" copper coin was recast. It has three denominations: 10, 20 and 50. In 1913, 100 and 200 coppers were added. Because the big circle on the opposite side of the coin is a seal book "Han" character, there are dozens of horizontal and straight lines on the bottom of the word "Han", so it is also called "Han" character copper yuan.
Sichuan copper coins are worth money. At the end of Guangxu, silver coins circulated in large quantities. In the Qing Dynasty, the provinces were ordered to stop casting silver coins on the grounds of their fineness, double differences and saving funds. At this time, Hong Kong began to cast "one immortal" coin copper yuan, which brought enlightenment to the Qing Dynasty. In Guangxu 26 (1900), Governor Li Hongzhang of Guangzhou and Guangdong started casting copper yuan in Guangdong. The popularity of copper yuan was well received by the market. In addition, Xingcast copper Yuan made a lot of profits. At the end of the twenty-seventh year of Guangxu (1901), the coastal provinces along the Yangtze River were ordered to open factories to cast copper yuan. Among the copper yuan in the Qing Dynasty, only one province in Sichuan had a face value of 30.

After the victory of 1911 Revolution, the Qing Emperor abdicated and the Republic of China was built. The commemorative coin of the founding of the Republic of China was a commemorative coin published by the Republic of China, with the words "commemorative coin of the founding of the Republic of China" on the front and ten articles interwoven with the Dragon banner on the back. At that time, the face value of copper coins was mainly ten and twenty, while the face value of fifty coins was quite rare and precious. Sichuan copper coin was coined by the local regime of Sichuan Province in the late Qing Dynasty and the Beiyang Period. Due to the lack of silver and copper deposits in Sichuan Province and warlord's warlord's warlord's inventory after the 1911 Revolution, the material proportion and denomination of copper coins in the Central Monetary Regulations have not been strictly observed.
