In the Qing Dynasty, silver, paper and copper coins went hand in hand, and new silver coins were issued in Jiaqing, while more gold and silver coins were minted in Guangxu. The Westernization Movement also affected the minting industry. In 1887, Governor Zhang Zhidong of Guangzhou and Guangzhou commissioned the British Minister to order a complete set of minting machines in the UK, and first minted silver and copper yuan in the Guangdong Money Bureau. Since then, the provinces have followed suit and purchased foreign mechanical casting silver and copper yuan. Many coins, including the Guangdong Money Bureau, are ordered from the famous London Birmingham Mint Co., Ltd. The intervention of British big industry has also stained silver coins with Western colors. On the positive side of coins, the integration of Manchu and Han cultures can be seen, while Qianbei clearly indicates the intervention of Western cultures.
