【中文摘要】唐宋两代地方政府铸钱管理职能有两方面主要差别 :一是唐代州县拥有更大权力 ,二是宋代在中央与州县之间设有路级政府机构 ,它曾在不同程度上参与过铸钱管理。这些机构虽历经变化与反复 ,但在大部分时间里 ,宋代兼管铸钱的路级机构不只一个 ,甚至在某些具体环节上 ,也有一个以上的路级机构兼管。这种变化与宋代钱监生产规模扩大 ,以及加强中央集权的趋势是分不开的。【英文摘要】There are two differences between the Tang dynasty and the Song dynasty in local government's management of coins casting. One is that the states and counties held more power in the Tang Dynasty. Another is that there was a government structure called Lu between the central government and the states in the Song Dynasty. The Lus were entitled to the management of coins casting. Most of the time there were more than one Lu organizations in managing coins casting. This phenomenon is due to the larger scale of coins casting and the weakening of local government’power.
