At the beginning, the issued Fujian official bureau made Guangxu Yuanbao with only three denominations, namely, when five, ten and twenty.
Each piece of Guangxu Yuanbao was made by Fujian government bureau as Qian Shiwen. It was cast in 1901 in the 27th year of Guangxu reign. It was not until 1912 that the casting stopped completely. Fujian is one of the provinces which started casting copper coins earlier after Guangdong Provincial Bureau. It not only adopted the same advanced equipment, technology and coin pattern as Guangdong, but also had more characteristics. It is very rare that each piece of Guangxu Yuanbao made by Fujian government bureau is made of red copper, because most of Guangxu Yuanbao is made of silver, and only a few provinces use copper.
