Silver ingot, a very important kind of money in ancient China, was melted into ingot by silver and widely circulated in the market. Silver ingot started in Han Dynasty, and it was cast continuously. However, it was really popular in Ming Dynasty, and it became the main currency in circulation in Qing Dynasty. Because of the weight unit of "two", it was often called silver ingot.
Manufacturing silver ingot belongs to the casting process, which has a complete set of traditional process. Due to the characteristics of silver metal and the special requirements of silver ingot mold, the method of casting silver ingot is different from the common casting method, which is a unique traditional process. China has a long history of ingot casting. Through continuous improvement and development, a complete set of ingot casting process has been gradually formed, which is generally completed by material calculation, melting, purification, color infiltration, color inspection, molding, engraving inscriptions, inspection and other processes. Each of them has its own merits, and they have the same characteristics.
Qing Dynasty is the peak period of China's silver ingot casting and development. The Qing government vigorously advocated the rapid development under the situation of "taking silver as the foundation and money as the end". After the middle and late Ming Dynasty, the continuous influx of foreign silver dollars and the active production of silver mines in the Ming and Qing Dynasties laid a solid foundation for the implementation of the silver system in the Qing Dynasty. The sufficient silver stock and free casting all over the country made the silver become an important medium of national financial revenue and expenditure in the early Qing Dynasty and an indispensable main currency in people's life. In the heyday of China's silver ingot casting and development in the Qing Dynasty, the Qing government adopted a policy of laissez faire for the casting of silver ingots. As described in the general survey of Qing Dynasty documents, "where silver was used, there were lawsuits, such as tattooed silver; when merchants exercised it, it ranged from 10% to 90.87%. In addition to all kinds of silver patterns, there are silk yuan and other silver in Jiangnan and Zhejiang, Yansan and other silver in Huguang and Jiangxi, Xicao and shuisi in Shanxi, Tucao, LiuCao and fennel in Sichuan, yuancao and other silver in Shaanxi and Gansu, Beiliu and other silver in Guangxi, Shicao and Camellia in Yunnan and Guizhou, as well as Qingsi, Baisi, single dip, double dip, square slot and long slot. It's because there is no shortage of silver at home, because it's more important than others to offset the amount of money, so it can be used freely. The silver ingots of Qing Dynasty are large in quantity, various in variety and various in variety. The shape has horseshoe type, round type, archway type, weight type, etc., and the weight ranges from 50-1.
There is also an important feature of the shape of Ming and Qing silver ingots compared with that of the previous dynasties, that is, their wings. During the pouring process, the silver liquid flows back and forth, which is more conducive to the overflow of gas in the silver liquid. The thickness of the silver liquid is closely related to the formation of honeycomb. In the process of casting, the internal pressure of the silver liquid is directly proportional to the height of the liquid surface. Compared with the silver ingots of song and Yuan Dynasties, the silver ingots of Ming and Qing Dynasties are thicker, and the internal pressure of the silver liquid is large, so the oxygen precipitated in the silver liquid is difficult to gather into larger bubbles, so the honeycomb hole formed is smaller. In the process of winging, because silver liquid flows back and forth and a large amount of gas escapes, there are no honeycomb holes or only pits in other parts. It can be seen that the shape of die cavity and the manual operation mode adopted will have an impact on the formation of honeycomb, which may be the technical reason for the change of silver ingot shape and appearance characteristics.
Silver ingots are made by silversmiths, so every silver ingot is a unique work of art. Today's ancient silver ingots are very rare. This kind of ancient coins bearing a long monetary culture and history has exited the commercial stage, but its current value cannot be ignored. This ingot is a kind of silver ingot in Qing Dynasty. It has complete appearance, deep coating and heavy hand feeling. It has been handed down till now. It is a rare silver ingot boutique. Silver ingots can still be used until the Republic of China. Until the founding of new China, silver ingots gradually withdrew from the market and were no longer used as currency transactions. As a result, the amount of silver ingots in the world is very scarce. As money that can not appear in the circulation market, this kind of silver ingots is even less common. It is a fine product in the collection field. It has been favored by experts, scholars and collectors from all walks of life and has become an important collection object. The price of silver ingots is very high. GE has always been considerable.
