Hong Kong new 100-dollar note confirmed without error



100 dollars (US$13), 1 January 2010.

According to an article in The Standard dated 25 July 2011, the Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corp has admitted to making a mistake in the design of its new 100-dollar (US$12.85) note which was officially unveiled on 20 July and slated for issuance between November 2011 and January 2012. The back of the note depicts the flag-raising ceremony of the SAR Establishment Day with a marching band playing in front of the Golden Bauhinia Square, where the national flag and regional flag of Hong Kong are flying. The problem is that the bauhinia flower on the regional flag was reversed from the correct orientation. The orientation has been corrected on the issued notes shown above.

Hong Kong's new 100-dollar note has a design error


According to an article in The Standard dated 25 July 2011, the Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corp has admitted to making a mistake in the design of its new 100-dollar (US$12.85) note which was officially unveiled on 20 July and slated for issuance between November 2011 and January 2012. The back of the note depicts the flag-raising ceremony of the SAR Establishment Day with a marching band playing in front of the Golden Bauhinia Square, where the national flag and regional flag of Hong Kong are flying. The problem is that the bauhinia flower on the regional flag is reversed from the correct orientation shown here:



"HSBC has immediately proceeded to redesign and reprint the faulty banknotes, with a view to putting them into circulation early next year as scheduled," the bank said in a joint statement with the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) and the government's administration wing.

HSBC was responsible for the design of the notes, while the HKMA reviewed the design before revealing it to the public. The administration wing also reviewed the banknotes for approval. "The three parties had not detected the issue," the statement said. "We sincerely apologize for the incident."

HSBC will bear all relevant costs for revising the design, remaking the plates and printing the new notes. The cost of producing each new note is about 60 HK cents (US$0.08).

It will be interesting to see if any of the error notes make in onto the collector market.

Hong Kong to issue new 20-, 50-, and 100-dollar notes starting November 2011





















According to a press release dated 20 July 2011, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) and the three note-issuing banks (Standard Chartered Bank (Hong Kong) Limited, The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited and Bank of China (Hong Kong) Limited) today unveiled the designs of the $100, $50 and $20 of the Hong Kong 2010 Series New Banknotes.

The new $100, $50 and $20 banknotes incorporate the same state-of-the-art security features as the new $1,000 and $500 banknotes (which are already in circulation) and also the design to facilitate the visually impaired to differentiate the denomination.

Mr Norman Chan, the Chief Executive of the HKMA, said “The new $100, $50 and $20 banknotes will be gradually put into circulation starting from this November, after which the entire Hong Kong 2010 Series New Banknotes will be in full circulation in the community. The new $1,000 and $500 banknotes, which have been in circulation since last December and this February respectively, receive very positive response from the public. I am confident that the new $100, $50 and $20 banknotes will be equally well received. ”

The Hong Kong 2010 Series New Banknotes were designed by the respective note-issuing banks and approved by the Financial Secretary. They are printed by Hong Kong Note Printing Limited.

The HKMA will launch an extensive education programme to raise public awareness of the new banknotes. Seminars will be conducted for banks, retailers and money changers; and special outreach seminars for centres for the elderly and people with visual impairments. Exhibitions will be held in different districts in Hong Kong (see schedule of exhibitions at Annex). The interactive online-learning programme on the HKMA website at www.hkma.gov.hk has been updated to include the design and security features of the whole 2010 Series Hong Kong Banknotes. Education leaflets are available to the public at the HKMA office, branches of the note-issuing banks and District Offices.

Mr Benjamin Hung, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of Standard Chartered Bank (Hong Kong) Limited said, “Standard Chartered Bank issued its first Hong Kong banknotes in 1862, and we celebrate a history of 150 years of note issuance in this vibrant financial centre. The new series of banknotes from Standard Chartered Hong Kong represents the continuous evolution of a design theme first commissioned in the 1980s. This latest series incorporates an overarching theme on the reverse side of the notes that pays tribute to the heritage of Chinese inventions whilst contrasting such early breakthroughs with those of modern security technology. Standard Chartered is proud to have played a part in contributing to Hong Kong’s financial sector as one of the SAR’s three note-issuing banks. We look forward to continuing to grow with Hong Kong in the next 150 years – and beyond.”

Mr Peter Wong, Chief Executive of The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited, said “HSBC’s legacy as Hong Kong’s largest note issuer begins another exciting chapter with the official launch of our new notes. HSBC’s new banknote series strongly reflects on Hong Kong’s culture for inspiration, showcasing local celebrations and festivals, Chinese calligraphy and traditional symbols and patterns within the unique design. As the bills enter circulation, we take great pride in the fact that this new series marks the first time that the Hong Kong community has been featured on HSBC’s banknotes.”

Mr He Guangbei, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive of Bank of China (Hong Kong) Limited, said, “Building a Better Tomorrow is what Bank of China (Hong Kong) is committed to, which also echoes in the designs of our new series of Hong Kong Banknotes. With roots in Hong Kong for more than 94 years, we have encountered ups and downs together with the society. While providing professional financial services to the public, we are also committed to protecting the environment in Hong Kong as a responsible corporate citizen. In designing the new banknotes, we not only honour these natural wonders, but encourage the public to join us to build a green Hong Kong and contribute to the sustainability of the society.”

All existing banknotes continue to be legal tender. They will circulate along with the new banknotes and be gradually withdrawn from circulation when they become physically unfit for circulation.

Hong Kong banknote exhibit opens

On 18 July 2010, an exhibit called “Stories Behind Banknotes" opened in the atrium of the Hong Kong Pavilion at the Expo 2010 Shanghai China (Shanghai Expo), which will run until 15 August. The Commissioner of the HKSAR Expo Affairs Office, Mr Patrick Chan, and the President and Chief Executive Officer Designate, HSBC Bank (China) Company Limited, Ms Helen Wong, officiated at the launch ceremony.

Mr Chan said, "HSBC's exhibition of the banknotes issued by the bank in the past 145 years, in the Hong Kong Pavilion at the first-ever World Expo hosted by our country in the city of Shanghai, has special meaning. "The banknotes featured in this exhibition are precious and very interesting. Many are rare, and some have never been publicly shown before." "Stories Behind Banknotes" provides a unique insight into the social and economic transformation of Hong Kong since HSBC issued its first banknote in the city in 1865.

Among the 56 banknotes featured is the "duress note" issued during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong in World War II. Other rare notes from Shanghai and other note-issuing branches across China are also displayed. HSBC Chief Executive Officer Hong Kong Mark McCombe said, "The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited has been the principal issuer of banknotes in Hong Kong since the bank issued its first banknote in 1865, the year of its establishment.

"Currently, approximately two out of every three banknotes in circulation in Hong Kong are issued by HSBC. HSBC's banknotes and their constantly shifting designs illustrate the trade and financial development of the region and provide a valuable insight into the culture and character of the city."

Hong Kong's Standard Chartered Bank new 150-dollar note confirmed

On 9 September 2009, Standard Chartered Bank (Hong Kong) began issuing one million 150-dollar (US$19.35) banknotes to commemorate its 150-year anniversary. The commemorative banknotes is legal tender, but was sold at a premium over face value. A single HK$150 note cost HK$280, a pane of four notes costs HK$1,888, and a full sheet of 35 notes is priced at HK$18,888.

Standard Chartered has also selected 100 notes with special lucky serial numbers for public bidding and another 10,000 pieces for which the public can pick a serial number of their choice. There are three categories of lucky number notes, with minimum bid prices of HK$10,000, HK$6,000 and HK$3,000. The "single self-selected serial number" notes will be offered at HK$888 each by lottery. Net proceeds will go to the bank's community foundation in support of local community projects and charities.

The front of the banknote, designed by Austrian graphic designer Henry Steiner, who has designed banknotes for Standard Chartered since 1975, features a satellite image of Victoria Harbour with the lender's corporate blue and green as the main color tones. The reverse side demonstrates the history of Hong Kong through iconic Images of people from all walks of life taking in the view of the Victoria Harbour from the Peak: a policeman, a mother and her chlld in a traditional back carrier, a bird fancier, a worker, a woman with a parasol, a businessman on his mobile phone, and a school boy pointing at a hawk. These Images demonstrate how the people of Hong Kong have contributed to the city's success through the past 150 years.
