Stack’s Bowers Galleries auctioned several interesting banknotes at the January 2019 New York International Numismatic Convention (NYINC) Auction. Well-preserved and rare Canadian and Chinese banknotes fared really well during these auctions.

Among Chinese banknotes, a Chinese Empire Board of Revenue 5 Taels issued in 1854 was auctioned for $13,200. The note was not heavily circulated.

A Straits Settlements 100 Dollars note issued in 1925 was sold for $18,000.
