Collection introduction: Zhouyuan Tongbao is the currency of the Five Dynasties and ten countries. It is also recognized as the most exquisite coin among the Five Dynasties. It was first cast in the second year of Xiande, Emperor Shizong of Zhou Dynasty (955 A.D.). Shizong Xiande was founded in 955. Imitating the Tang Dynasty's "Kaiyuan Tongbao" money, it was named "Zhouyuan Tongbao". In 954 ad, after Chai Rong was succeeded by Zhou Shizong, in order to raise military salaries and appease the people, he ordered the destruction of the Buddha at the beginning of his accession, destroyed the bronze statues in the Buddhist temple, and forged "Zhou Yuan Tong Bao", which destroyed 336 Buddhist temples in the world. Because the Tongbao of Zhou Yuan was made of Buddha and copper with good effect of eliminating evil spirits, some folk prescriptions also used it as medicine to cure diseases. In the book shadow, it said that "women holding the money can cure dystocia"; in the Jinling area of Qing Dynasty, there was a custom that dystocia women holding the Tongbao of Zhou Yuan can deliver successfully, and others said that the Tongbao of Zhou Yuan can cure malaria.
