    Iconic Outer Provinces 5000 Yuan of 1951

    China People's Bank of China 5000 Yuan 1951 Pick 857Ba S/M#C282 PMG Very Fine 25.
    As the People's Republic influenced increased control at the northern frontier, banknotes were necessary for the remote villages there. This 5000 Yuan is one of a few denominations created expressly for the Outer Provinces of Inner Mongolia and Xinjiang. Notice the Mongolian and Uyghur text on the back of this note. We have offered this iconic design only once previously, a PCGS Good 4, which netted $55,812 in 2014. This example, despite being previously mounted and with associated repairs, is vastly superior to the previous note which sold in 2014. Only five examples appear to have sold publicly in major auctions in the past decade which confirms the rarity of this type. Worthy of strong consideration, as this iconic type rarely presents itself today.

    1951年中國人民銀行伍仟圓(第一版人民幣)。PMG Very Fine 25。
    第一版人民幣大珍之一蒙古包!隨中華人民共和國政權屆及中國北部,人民銀行需要引發紙幣予當地偏遠村落使用。由背面蒙文及維文可知,此伍仟圓鈔專為内蒙古地區流通,其設計亦貼合當地文化特徵。由於當時的牧民仍習慣以物易物,此鈔只在城市範圍使用,發行量相當少,且多數流通票的品相欠佳。這標志性的人民幣珍品存世量極其稀少,敝司只曾拍賣過一次:2014年一枚被評爲PCGS Good 4的例子以$55,812美元成交。本次拍賣的一張雖有黏貼及修補痕跡,品相遠遠優於前者。過去十年間,公開拍賣場上僅出現過5張同款鈔票,足證此品稀世無雙。難得一遇的機會,著實值得各收藏家競投。
