Qian Long reign of Qing Emperor Gaozong was cast in the Qian Long period ( 1736-1795 years ), on the back of the Manchu is relatively complex, can refer to the " Huaguang general ancient Chinese coins directory ", which had a very detailed price and money rubbings. Qian Long Tongbao money trail of about 2.2-2.5 cm, weighing about 2.4-4.8 grams. Money plane text " this mean to script writing, the word " from top to bottom and right and left direct reading. Money back along the text Yong Zheng money type perforated left is " treasure ", perforated cast each bureau name right.Casting background:Yong Zheng thirteen years ( 1735), the Qing emperor ascended the throne, Emperor yuan.

" Forty years of Qianlong, private cast increasingly, provincial officials steal cast, government be put in a quandary, coupled with Yunnan's copper output degressive year after year, drive prices soaring, casting cost soared. The Qing government and the deflation policy, has stopped cast Po straight, Dali, Guangxi, Ling'an Bureau, while encouraging businessmen from overseas imports of copper. But these measures failed to fundamentally solve the problem of private coinage, although decrease somewhat, but the official money does not increase, the folk trade money, appeared the phenomenon of using coins. The Qian Long fifty years later, again in succession open treasure until Bureau, at the same time relaxed cast money standard, resulting in Qian Long period money of uneven quality, not as the case.
