As a representative ancient coin, after thousands of years of vicissitudes of life, the number of survivors is becoming less and less, and the significance of investment and collection is also increasing.
Chongning Chongbao was minted in the Chongning period of Huizong in the Northern Song Dynasty (1102-1106 A.D.). Its currency was made of copper, iron and silver. Chongning Chongbao is a large copper and iron coin in Li script, which is well-made, and Chongning Chongbao Qianwen is a thin gold body in Huizong imperial script, with silver hooks, and has a deep charm of bone and clear style. Its superb calligraphy can be regarded as the peak of regular script in coin script, which makes many collectors of ancient coins reluctant to let go.
The whole money body is thick, bronze, rusty and old, the handwriting is delicate and thin, the iron-scratched silver hook is handsome and elegant, which is in full accord with the recognized character Chongning Chongbao. The structure of the font is clear, the strokes are sharp, and the bones are beautiful and clear. It is of great significance to appreciate and collect.
In January 1100, Zhe Zong, the emperor of the Northern Song Dynasty, died of illness. Zhao You, his brother, succeeded him as the eighth emperor of the Northern Song Dynasty and became Huizong of the Song Dynasty. Huizong was "skillful in nature and superior to artistry", indulging in calligraphy and painting all day long and ignoring the Chao Gang. During his 25 years in office, he has forged six kinds of coins, including St. Song Tongbao, Chongning Tongbao (Chongbao), Daguan Tongbao, Zhengtongbao (Chongbao), Chongtongbao, Xuantongbao (Yuanbao). Among them, the Qianwen of Chongning Tongbao and Daguantongbao is the lean gold body of Huizongs imperial handwriting. It is amazing that Chongning Tongbao, a ten-fold thin gold style, has refined bronze and beautiful and clear characters, which makes people fond of it.
