    Rare First Series Renminbi 10,000 Yuan

    China People's Bank of China 10,000 Yuan 1951 Pick 858Aa S/M#C282 PMG Very Fine 25 Net.
    Rare in any condition, this 10,000 Yuan issued note from the first series Renminbi is one of the most sought after notes from the People's Republic of China. Introduced in May 1951, this series and especially this high denomination issue saw limited distribution as these notes were focused regionally in the Inner Mongolian and Xinjiang provinces. Considered the Key Note of the entire Renminbi Series, this will definitely be a great addition to and highlight any collection. Some restoration is annotated by the grading company adding to the overall appearance of this example. The last example to cross the auction block was graded similarly at Very Fine 25 and realized $186,000 and we expect similar results for this offering.

    NOTE: This lot was manufactured in China and was sourced from outside the United States for this auction after September 1, 2019. Under the new US tariffs on Chinese goods, collector's items from China will be subject to a 7.5% import tariff. Any clients who wish to take delivery of this item in the United States should be aware of this added charge, and consult their tax adviser with any questions.


    1951年中國人民銀行壹萬圓(第一版人民幣)。PMG Very Fine 25 Net。
    為人民幣系列的名譽品。此鈔不論任何品相,均屬珍品,為受熱烈追捧的一款中國鈔票。正面為牧馬圖,淺紫、紅褐色調;背面圖案為花符(有蒙文),淺藍、茶色調。該幣於1951年發行,1955年停用,僅短暫的流通。此系列的鈔票主要在內蒙古及新疆地區使用,未曾廣泛流通,因而一票難求,特別是高面值的鈔票。作為人民幣系列的亮點,此票定必能為您的收藏生色不少。 評級公司指出此票上有輕微修復痕跡。此票與上一張出現在拍賣市場的同款鈔票評級相約,後者評級為VF25,落槌價為186,000美元,敝司估計此品拍賣成績相若。
