Mao Money

I forgot to show you all what renminbi (People's Currency) looks like:


Left: Obverse (front) side of the 5, 10, and 20 RMB note. At the current exchange rate of about 8 RMB to 1 USD, these are worth $0.625, $1.25, and $2.50, respectively.
Right: Reverse (back) side.


Here's the 5 jiao, or 0.5 RMB, note, which is still in circulation and has a current value of $0.0625. Note that this note does not bear the image of the late Chinese Communist Party chairman Mao Zedong.



The smallest denomination bill that I saw was 1 jiao, or 0.1 RMB ($0.0125).

Very colorful. I like looking at foreign money. Makes ours look so old-fashioned and plain.

Ours is getting more colorful...
... though only gradually. It's still basically green.

I still have a 10 RMB bill in my wallet to liven it up. ;-D

The largest denomination I saw there was 100 RMB ($12.50, though I did handly a stack of 100 of those, or $1250).

Its nice looking money :-)
Is the second picture without Mao on it a newer note ? Or is the money still printed with him on it ?

All of the notes are current
The larger denominations are all Mao, at least up to 100 RMB.
