Chongning Chongbao was minted in the Chongning period of Huizong in the Northern Song Dynasty (1102-1106 A.D.). Its currency is copper, iron and silver. Chongning Chongbao is a large copper and iron coin in Li Shu, which is well-made and well-made. In addition, Chongning Tongbao Qianwen is a thin gold body in Huizong imperial script, with silver hooks and iron scribes. It has a deep charm of bone and clear style. Its calligraphy is superb, and it can be regarded as the peak of regular script in coin script. The world calls it the spring of Song Dynasty, and Xinmang calls it the "two saints" of Qian Fa in China.
In the twenty-five years of his reign, Huizong of the Song Dynasty coined six kinds of coins, namely, St. Song Tongbao, Chongning Tongbao (Chongbao), Daguan Tongbao, Zhengtongbao (Chongbao), Chongtongbao, Xuantongbao (Yuanbao). Chongning is Zhao You's second year number, taking the meaning of inheriting Shenzong Changfa Xining. Chongning Chongbao is the second kind of annual number money of Chongning Bank of Huizong in Song Dynasty, including Chongning Yuanbao, Chongning Tongbao and Chongning Chongbao.
Chongning Chongbao is precise and solemn. Legend is written by Cai Jing, a famous traitor in Xuanhe years. Cai Jing's character is long, and he has repeatedly risen, ruthlessly, and framed loyalty. Despite his bad character, he writes well. Some people have commented on his charming character, profound skill and rigorous, generous and indulgent spirit.
Legend has it that Zhao You loved his calligraphy and let Cai Jing write Chongning Chongbao Qian Wen. When he wrote, he had ulterior motives to connect Chong Zi's mountains with Zong Lian's vertical pen, and omitted the Xin Zi in Ning Zi's traditional style. He was accused of deliberately breaking the Song Dynasty and not intending to tranquilize the country.
So far, it is difficult to find Chongning Tongbao's small flat money, which was coined with Chongning Tongbao at that time. The normal appearance of Chongning Tongbao is more than one million yuan at auction. Some Chongning Tongbao Xiaoping's bid has already exceeded several million yuan, so that a popular saying in the spring circle is: the grand view should be big, Chongning should be small. That is to say, Chongning Tongbao Xiaoping is relatively small and not easy to get, so it is better to collect Chongning money as small as possible (Chongning Tongbao) and as large as possible.
There is another reason for the high price of Chongning Tongbao. Chongning Tongbao belongs to the money of imperial scripts which has been decided. Qian Wen is the thin gold body of Huizong's relatives'books, the silver hook of iron painting, the superb calligraphy, the deep charm of bone and clear style, which is the peak of regular scripts in coins. The world judged it as the first spring of the Song Dynasty, and Xinmang called China's Qian Fa Ersheng. Many collectors of ancient coins couldn't help loving it.
