Silver ingot, ancient Chinese currency, is the silver melted into ingot. The weight is not equal, so "two" is the main weight unit, so it is also called silver. It began in the Han Dynasty, and was cast in later generations, but it was not widely circulated. Silver ingot was popular in Ming Dynasty, but it was not the national legal silver ingot currency. Until the Qing Dynasty, it began to circulate as the main currency. In ancient times, the casting of "silver ingot" had very strict regulations. In order to ensure the quality of silver ingots, all the silver ingots handed over to the State Treasury should indicate the turning over land, casting time and the silver number (or craftsman's name), etc. Therefore, the silver number that can cast the ingot has a good reputation. The quality of silver ingots in Ming and Qing Dynasties is generally between 95-98, and the appearance has the special luster and warmth of silver. Due to the residual gas in the mould during casting, there are irregular gas cavities at the bottom of the ingot, commonly known as honeycomb. Silver surface is easy to oxidize, so there is usually a layer of black and gray silver oxide. The silver ingot has a unique preservation environment. It is naturally oxidized around and at the bottom. The surface of the ingot keeps the original silver light. There is a big word "wealth" engraved on the top, which means that the source of wealth is widely advanced. The ingot is warm and white, and the treasure gas is Soul-catching, and the state is incomparable. Silver ingots like this, which have accumulated over time and historical culture, naturally surpass pure silver itself and have a very high collection value. Silver ingots are made by silversmiths' hands, so each piece of silver ingot is a unique work of art. The change of dynasties, the change of times, the turbulence of current situation, and the reform of history have led to the scarcity of silver ingots and their high value. Nowadays, as a precious collection, ancient silver ingots are favored by experts, scholars and collectors.
Qing Dynasty is the peak period of China's silver ingot casting and development. Due to different regions and casting processes, silver ingots of different types, forms and names are popular among silver ingot collectors. Silver ingot has a high value preservation function, and its price has skyrocketed in recent years. In the market, the price of 20 Liang silver ingots in Ming Dynasty has reached 34 million yuan, and the smallest one in Qing Dynasty has reached about one million yuan. Silver ingot, an ancient coin bearing a long monetary culture and history, has withdrawn from the commercial stage, but its current value cannot be ignored. Silver ingots are made by the hand of silversmiths. Therefore, each piece of silver ingot is a unique work of art. Nowadays, there are very few ancient silver ingots, especially the inscription ingots. Nowadays, as a precious collection, ancient silver ingots are favored by experts, scholars and collectors. Experts suggest that although silver ingot is an ancient currency, its existence is not large. In 1933, the Chinese currency system began to abolish the use of silver, and a large number of silver outflow, so the total silver ingot in the market is less.
