Was the Dutch 2.5G ever encountered in circulation there? I recall that it was about the same size as the 5F, and also pure nickel?

 

 

I may have seen them, but frankly the newer Dutch coins never held much of an interest - and unless it had Wilhelmina or Juliana on them I didn't even give them a second look. I thought it was curious to still be getting Queen Wilhelmina era coins like the 5 cent in change. Before the Euro the Dutch and German coins were the oldest that you could find in circulation in Europe outside of Switzerland. I do remember getting and spending the 5 florin/gulden coins though.

Thought I'd share these two remainder banknotes from China - used in the same city, but issued by different companies, and printed by two other companies, these similar notes were denominated in 1 copper diao (string) during the chinese republic period. I bought these notes due to their similaries with obvious differences and to show the printing styles and practices of issuing similar currency at that time period.

Neat notes Dave. Are they as large as the images make them appear?

 

 

No, THey are actually a bit larger. about 10 inches long by 3 inches wide. The larger one is 3/16 of an inch more.

 

Very interesting. I find the denomination to be a bit confusing since "copper dollar" to my understanding is a reference to the 10-cash / 1-cent coins.

 

That was a mystery to me too, so I consulted with an expert on Chinese banknotes, Erwin Meyer. Erwin is one heck of a great guy with an amazing amount of knowledge and understanding of the language, culture, and history of China and their currency. He explained that the (translated) phrase is simply Copper Money, 1 Diao (diao=String). The other note doesn't have the copper character, but it is merely a shortened method of stating the same thing, and is still evidently dealing with copper units. For me, translating the charachters is one thing, but putting them into context is quite another - as with any language.

This is a great note MauMauNotes! I've always like this note a lot. I've been looking for the 10,000 note as well, but its very hard for me to find one, and when I do it's usually circulated and well more than I want to pay! Perhaps just get two of these 5,000 notes and call it even, eh?

 

Congrats!

 

I almost forgot to ask: Do you know if the letter X on this note is a replacement indicator or simply a block letter?

Do you have a copy of "The Currencies of China"? It's a pretty in depth 1920s contemporary banker's view of currencies and coinage circulating / used.

No I do not. I haven't heard of it before you posted this. I did a search and downloaded a free pdf from Archive.org and will look into it. Thanks for the recommendation. I will likely buy one - Amazon has a "real" book for sale that is reasonable. - Thanks for the recommendation.

 

I do have a copy (PDF from Archive.org and Real from Amazon) of "Certain Old Chinese Notes or Chinese Paper Money" by Andrew McFarland Davis (1915) which is a good book, but deals mainly with notes before the republic era (before 1911).
