    Scarce 1950 Dated Issue

    China People's Bank of China 50,000 Yuan 1950 Pick 856.
    A scarcer type note due to its high denomination status and limited time in circulation. Although dated 1950, this issue was introduced in December 1953 and was withdrawn in April 1955. The vignette on the face of the note features Xinhuamen gate of the former Imperial Garden Zhongnanhai, which is adjacent to the Forbidden City in Beijing. This well preserved example maintains all original details and is in a comment free holder. Graded PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.


    為第一版人民幣中高面值鈔、備受藏家追捧。流通時間短因而罕見的類型。雖然發行日期顯示1950年,實際上是1953年12月流通、1955年召回。發行不過兩年,故存世量極少,如此未流通品相更難能可貴,正面以中南海正門新華門為圖案。所有原樣細節保存完好的一枚,獲評PMG Choice Uncirculated 64。
