At the same time, due to the historical factors of the specific period at that time, the stock is relatively scarce. During the period of the Republic of China, the circulation range of Sichuan copper coins manufactured by the military government was relatively narrow, and the circulation and stock of Sichuan copper coins were very small. For this reason, fewer people contacted Sichuan copper coins and fewer researchers, but this does not mean that Sichuan copper coins have no collection value.
