In April 1912， Yuan Shikai became President of the People s Republic of China. In view of the complexity of coinage and banknotes at that time， the Beiyang government decided to coin and issue the national currency because of the different specifications， confusion， cumbersome conversion and complaints of the people. At the same time， it also wanted to solve the military expenditure problem by means of currency restructuring. In order to improve his dominant position， consolidate the domestic political stability and develop the national economy， Yuan Shikai took the opportunity to cast his head on the surface of the coin， from which Yuan Datou came. Because Yuan Datou s silver coin is uniform in shape， with strict regulations on its fineness and weight， it was quickly recognized and accepted by the society. It gradually replaced Longyang of the Qing Dynasty in the domestic financial market and became the main currency in the circulation field.
