In order to welcome the arrival of the new century and the new millennium, the people’s Bank of China issued a set of “greeting the new century” on November 28, 2000. “Welcome the new century” banknote is 100 yuan, 165 mm long and 80 mm wide, made of plastic. The main color is golden yellow. The main scene of the front is based on Beijing nine dragon wall. The left side of the dragon is the auspicious pattern of “fire bead”. The transparent window on the left side of the ticket is the “Temple of heaven” pattern, and the right side is the dynamic holographic logo. The main scene on the back is the representative building to welcome the new century — the Chinese century altar. On the top is the traditional Chinese “flying sky” pattern and the Chinese Pinyin of “people’s Bank of China”. On the upper right is the design of the national emblem of the people’s Republic of China, and the lower right is the words and denominations of “people’s Bank of China” in Mongolian, Tibetan, Uyghur and Zhuang languages. It has the same function as the current RMB and has the same circulation with the same denomination RMB. The front design of this commemorative note is based on the design of the “big rising dragon” on the nine dragon wall of Beihai Park in Beijing. It is dignified and solemn, and seems to be jubilant. The back pattern of the Longchao is the representative building “China Century Monument” to welcome the new century. The overall color of the ticket is orange, which greatly highlights the Royal spirit.
Millennium Dragon Commemorative Banknote is issued by the Bank of RMB in order to meet the new century and the new millennium. At the same time, the dragon is also a symbol of China. The Chinese people have a special plot for the dragon. In the new century, it is of great significance for us to be the descendants of the Chinese people and the descendants of the dragon. The meaning of China’s rise in the new century has a high value of commemorative collection. Millennium Dragon banknote is the first plastic Commemorative Banknote issued by the people’s Republic of China, but the second one has not been issued yet. Its printing technology represents the highest level of China and even the world at that time. China has always been strict in issuing commemorative banknotes. In line with the principle that no official souvenirs are issued for non major events, only three sets of commemorative banknotes (Olympic Commemorative Banknote, Millennium Dragon banknote and 50th anniversary banknote) have been issued. Compared with other precious metals and ordinary commemorative coins, the millennium long banknote has a great historical value and collection value, especially precious! This Millennium Dragon note is to commemorate the arrival of the new century and the once-in-a-hundred-year event. Therefore, this commemorative note is of great value. It is also said that this commemorative note is made of plastic materials for the first time. It should be noted that there are only 25 countries and regions that can issue plastic banknotes, which is also a great breakthrough in the history of banknotes.
The collection industry has always paid attention to the word “first”. Many well-known collection items are because they occupy a “head”, thus they have a continuous collection audience, and their value can continue to grow. The value of the Commemorative Banknote (RMB) with the three characters of “China’s first plastic banknote”, “China’s first Olympic banknote” and “China’s first Zodiac note” is even more extraordinary, and even occupies an absolutely dazzling position in China’s top coin collection. The Millennium Dragon note is the first Chinese Zodiac note issued in China. As we all know, China’s first Zodiac stamp “monkey ticket” issued by China National stamp Corporation in 1980 has been the only treasure in the eyes of collectors. As a coin collection that keeps pace with stamp collection, the value of the first Zodiac stamp can be said to be extraordinary, and its collection and pre investment landscape are comparable to the monkey ticket. Global Limited, rare collection! For 1.4 billion Chinese and 6.7 billion global people, the total circulation of China’s Millennium Dragon note is really a drop in the ocean. At least 50 million collectors in China, at least hundreds of millions in the world, more than 100 million Chinese with dragon as the phase, and countless investors are the biggest buyers of Millennium Dragon notes! With such a huge collection base and such a huge quantity, only 10 million pieces can be issued, which is far from meeting the needs of all people. Now, ten years later, after the first round of market precipitation, the price of Millennium Dragon banknotes is rising, while the stock is becoming increasingly scarce. Therefore, to collect millennium long banknotes as soon as possible is to walk ahead of most people and become the winner of collection.
