    Deutsch-Asiatische Bank Tientsin 20 Taels 1907 Specimen

    China Deutsch-Asiatische Bank Tientsin 20 Taels 1.3.1907 Pick S303s Specimen.
    A highly desirable bank with this PMG Choice Uncirculated 63 note being the first Specimen on the Deutsch-Asiatische Bank to appear in our auctions. The other notes that we have auctioned were remainders. The Deutsch-Asiatische Bank was the first large non-British financial institution to set up residency in China. The note in this lot is from the Tientsin branch with the main branch located in Shanghai. This bank would go on to underwrite Chinese Imperial loans to the tune of 32 million British pounds. It also invested in new railroads and mining interests that were within the German sphere of influence in China. The circulation for this bank was controlled by the German government in Berlin and was never large. The design for the notes of this bank have Germania with a spear at right, while the German eagle is found at upper left, and in the lower left corner is a dragon vignette. World War I sounded the death knell for this bank, but it lives on today due to dedicated paper money collectors.


    非常吸引的其中一款紙幣。是我們拍賣會上經手的首枚德華銀行的貳拾兩樣票,曾拍賣過的其他均為庫存票。德華銀行是在華設立的除英國以外的首個大型銀行。當時總行位於上海,而這枚樣票來自天津分行。它承銷清政府的貸款達到3200萬英鎊,在德國對華的影響範圍內,還投資鐵路及礦業。該行由身在柏林的德國政府控制,發行流通量向來有限。德華銀行的紙幣設計上,手持長矛的日耳曼尼婭在右,左上日耳曼之鷹,左下滿清之龍。一次世界大戰為德華銀行鳴響了喪鐘,但其生命又在滿腔熱誠的紙幣藏家之間綿延至今。獲評PMG Choice Uncirculated 63。
