Hong Kong Paper Money Auction Highlights

19 Aug 2019  Mon

Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio will be organising the Hong Kong Coin and Paper Money auction from 19th to 22nd August during the Hong Kong Coin Show. Several interesting banknotes would be offered during the sale. One of the highlights is a very scarce 10 Yuan Test Note from China, graded Gem 65EPQ produced by the Beijing Banknote Printing Company, depicting a portrait of Confucius and a watermark of Chairman Mao Zedong. This note is missing from the notable collections of Chinese Banknotes. Extremely few Beijing Test Notes exist in the market today, irrespective of the design or denomination. An uncut Test Note Pair from the 2008 Beijing Olympics produced at Chengdu Banknote Printing Complex, is another offering to look out for. These identical notes are graded Choice AU 58 and do not feature denomination. One is blue in colour while the second one is green in colour.

Other highlights include a 10,000 Yuan note issued by the People’s Bank of China in 1951, graded PMG Very Fine 25; a 100 Taels, ND specimen note issued between 1885 and 1911 by the Chartered Bank of India, Australia & China Specimen, graded PMG Very Fine 30 Net. Rust, Previously Mounted; a 5 Tael Remainder note issued by the Deutsch-Asiatische Bank in 1907, graded PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 and 1000 Rupees ND note issued in 1928 by the Government of India, graded PCGS GSG About Uncirculated 50 Details. Perforated.
