Our March Hong Kong Sale, held at the Mira Hotel, March 25 at 1:00 PM HKT will offer a few very impressive People’s Republic of China notes.


One of the top highlights can be found in lot 50163, a 1951 5,000 Yuan from the Xinjiang Province in a PMG VF 20 holder, estimated at 40,000 to $60,000. A significant 1951 10,000 Yuan follows in lot 50164 showcasing the Camel Caravan design. It carries a very modest $25,000 to $30,000 estimate. 


Perhaps the most popular note in the PRC section however, is a wide format, 1953 Issued 10 Yuan in a PMG EF 40 holder offered in lot 50174. This popular design shows the Farm Couple vignette at center, and has attracted tremendous interest as of late, with some strong realizations in recent years. The offered note has bright inks, and bears an estimate of only $20,000 to $30,000.


These are just a few highlights of our vast and eclectic Hong Kong sale. For questions regarding bidding, or to consign to our August Hong Kong Sale, please contact Aris@StacksBowers.Com. You may register to bid for the sale on our site www.stacksbowers.com.
