    Mexican Peso Denominated Rarity from the Russo-Chinese Bank

    China Russo-Chinese Bank, Shanghai 1 Mexican Dollar 14.3.1901 Pick S536a S/M#O5-1 PMG Very Fine 25.
    A truly prized issued banknote, very rare in any grade, and historically intriguing. In the late 19th century, Mexico sold an enormous cache of silver peso coins to China for circulation, which solidified the then-primitive economy. Denominated in Mexican Pesos, this initial denomination is printed in English, Chinese and Russian. Handstamped dates on both sides remain clear enough, and otherwise, this problem free example is quite visually pleasing. Only the third example we have offered. Desirable, rare, and interesting: a combination that should lead to spirited bidding.
    From the Yuri Solovey Collection of Chinese Foreign Banks & Hong Kong
