    First of Two Consecutive Serial Numbers

    China Bank of China, Fuhkien 1 Dollar 1.6.1912 Pick 25e S/M#C294-30e PMG About Uncirculated 53.
    An intense portrait of the Qing Shi Emperor is featured on this issue from the first year of the Republic of China. Amoy (Xiamen) was one of the five treaty ports open to European traders, but the trading scale it handled paled against that of the others, especially nearby Guangzhou. Thus, the Fujian issuance was considerably smaller, but because of trade usage, circulation was still heavy. Deep inks and exquisite guilloche designs create an dynamic eye appeal on this lovey note. Although minor stains are noted, this example holds the sole highest grade highest grade in the PMG Population Report revealing the rarity of this issue. This is a fantastic opportunity to add such a rare example to your Chinese collection.
