1911年辛亥革命胜利后，清帝退位，中华民国成立。中国民主主义革命的先驱者孙中山就任中华民国临时大总统，并在颁布的“临时大总统令”中提出要“另刊新模，鼓铸纪念币”，随后武昌和南京两处造币厂率先铸行了 “中华民国开国纪念币”铜元辅币，以十文面值的为主，在全国大量发行以取代清朝铜元。这就是“中华民国开国纪念币” 铜元的由来。
After the victory of the 1911 Revolution, the Qing emperor abdicated and the Republic of China was founded. Sun Yat Sen, the pioneer of China's democratic revolution, took office as the provisional president of the Republic of China. In his "provisional presidential decree", he proposed that "a new model should be published and commemorative coins should be forged". Subsequently, two mints in Wuchang and Nanjing took the lead in casting copper coins of the founding of the Republic of China, mainly in the denomination of 10 Wen, which were issued in large quantities to replace the copper coins of the Qing Dynasty. This is the origin of the "commemorative coin of the founding of the Republic of China".
This coin is ten pieces of commemorative coin for the founding of the Republic of China. The two flags on the front of the coin cross the center of the coin, reflecting the social phenomenon and the characteristics of the times. On the top of the two banners, there are four traditional regular script characters of "Republic of China" and five regular script traditional characters of "Founding commemorative coin" at the bottom. The font is strong and powerful, and the layout of the frame structure is ingenious. It is a rare calligraphy. There is a flower ornament on both sides of the flag.
On the back of the coin, the method of ornamentation and the combination of English and Chinese is adopted. There are evenly arranged convex dots in the inner ring to form a beautiful bead circle. At the upper end of the bead circle, there is the word "Shiwen" and the bottom is Jiahe pattern composed of rice ears. Outside the bead circle, there are branches and leaves. After a long time of washing, the face of the coin is slightly worn out, but the overall integrity can still be seen. In addition, the natural copper rust coating adds a layer of historical significance to the coin. It is rare and has a good value and is worthy of collection
