THE EARLY REPUBLIC

In the first year of the Republic, several provinces, among them Sichuan (Szechuan), Yunnan, Fujian (Fukien) and Hunan, minted coins independently, with their own designs.

Guangdong (Kwangtung) Province minted 20 cent coins in the first three years of the Republic, the denomination being shown in English with western numerals. A similar 1 cent coin was issued first in copper, then in brass from year 3 onwards. These designs continued in later years and were extended to other denominations.
