Several banks have issued banknotes for Hong Kong in the past. This included the Chartered Bank
10 dollars dated 1981 (P77b) They are coloured bright green with a stylised carp on the front. The
Arms of the bank and the Bank Headquarters appears on the back. Crisp EF.
These 100 francs follow that admirable French tradition of beautifully and delicately designed notes.
Our group has notes dated between 1930 and 1939. The front has allegorical figures alongside
farming vignettes with apple trees, sheep and bales of wool. The back features a seated blacksmith to
the left and allegorical figures with a cornucopia of fruit to the right.
Our notes have all seen circulation and grade VG to Fine.
