The construction of the Kwangtung Mint outside the City of Canton at Huang Hua T'ang commenced in 1887 and was completed in 1889.
The Kwangtung Mint began trial minting by machinere of cash coins on the 26th day of the fourth moon in 1889. It was officially inaugurated on the 3rd day of the eighth moon of the same year and commened minting of the Kuang Hsu Tung Pao cash coins.

This cash coin weighed 1 mace (Chinese measurements) and bore the mint mark Kwang written in both Chinese and Manchu characters and the denomination in Chinese [Equivalent to one cash]. They were for general circulation at the rate of 1000 cash to one tael of silver. This was the new machin-made cash coin, but the cash coins of early issues were allowed to continue their circulation in the market

This was the kuang Hsu Tung Pao with the Kwang mint mark of two Manchu characters on the reverse. It was valued at par with 1 mace cash coin for general circulation with other cash coins of earlier issues in the local market.
