由于广东省当时铸造此币的目的是奉献清廷以祝慈禧太后万寿，所以铸额不大，大多奉献给清廷或赠于当时的达官显贵，见于民间流通的很少。该银币正面珠圈外上端镌刻 “广东省造”四字，下端镌刻楷书“库平重壹两”五字，左右两侧各镌有一蝙蝠图案，珠圈内铸有 “光绪元宝”四字。银币背面珠圈外铸双龙戏珠图案，珠圈内铸一圆形“寿”字。银币设计极富特色，正面两侧所铸的一对蝙蝠图案寓意吉祥。因蝙蝠的“蝠”字与“福”字谐音，在币面上铸蝙蝠图案意在取“蝠”、“福”两字谐音，与背面的“寿”字相对应，寓意“福寿双全”。
Since the purpose of this coin was to offer the Qing Dynasty a long life to Empress Dowager Cixi in Guangdong Province at that time, the amount of this coin was not large. Most of it was given to the Qing Dynasty or to the dignitaries and dignitaries at that time, which was rarely circulated among the people. The silver coin has four characters of "made in Guangdong Province" on the outside of the bead circle on the front, five characters of "Kuping heavy one two" on the bottom, a bat pattern on the left and right sides, and four characters of "Guangxu Yuanbao" in the bead circle. On the back of the silver coin, there is a pattern of double dragons playing with beads outside the bead circle and a circle of "longevity" inside the bead circle. The silver coin design is very distinctive, and a pair of bat patterns on both sides of the front symbolize auspiciousness. Because bat is homophonic with Fu, the bat pattern on the coin is intended to take bat and Fu as homophonic characters, corresponding to longevity on the back, implying both happiness and longevity.
There are no exact records about the coinage of "Guangdong shuanglongshou character coin one or two, seven money two Fen, seven money two" silver coins. There are three opinions in the market. One is that this silver coin was coined in 1904, the thirtieth year of Guangxu, to commemorate the 70th birthday of Empress Dowager Cixi. The second view is that in 1894, Guangdong mints made coins to celebrate Cixi's 60th birthday. The third view: this coin was minted when Guangxu's power reached its peak in 1898. It was only because of the palace coup that Guangxu emperor was put into prison by Cixi that the coin failed to circulate. There are many supporters of the above three views. No matter which view is right, from the collection value alone, the three views show that it is a "commemorative coin" made for birthday celebration, with exquisite workmanship. And due to limited distribution or failure to officially circulate, it is rare.
