During Yuan Dynasty to early Ming Dynasty, the government forbade silver as currency by introduction and promotion of paper currency. But in novels and operas of this period, the use of silver in daily life and transaction is quite common. This is the lively image of social life at that time and reflects the limited effect of government rules. So the conclusion that Tale of Water Margin was written in early Jiajin period due to the widely use of silver in scenarios may not be credible. This can not only remind us of the difference between government regulation and actual daily life, but also the importance of “double check on historical materials”.
