    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.

    罕見華俄道勝銀行墨西哥銀元票

    1901年華俄道勝銀行壹墨西哥銀元。上海地名。PMG Very Fine 25。
    真正珍貴的發行鈔票,在任何等級都非常罕見,而且具有歷史性的吸引力。1898年開始,華俄道勝銀行在中國東北的滿洲里以及內地的一些地區發行制錢票和銀兩票,1901年開始,又陸續中國各地發行以銀元為本位的銀元票,其中以墨西哥銀元為單位的又被稱為墨西哥銀元票,墨洋票。直至19世紀後期,為鞏固當時的經濟,墨西哥向中國出售了大量的白銀比索以供流通。薄紙彩印,風格與俄國盧布類似,票面有中、英、俄三種語言的行名、面值和「上海」地名。雙面蓋印日期清晰可見,完美。我們遇到過的第三張,極為受歡迎、罕有、漂亮,足以帶來競投熱潮。
