Chinese Banknotes

Here are all the Chinese banknotes currently in circulation. For most notes, there are two designs, the old and new. The 20 Yuan note is only available in the new design and the 2 Yuan only in the old. The Jiao notes are only in the old design.

On the 8th of July 2008, a limited edition special 10 Yuan note was issued to celebrate the upcoming Beijing Olympics. These were snapped up by collectors and are not really in circulation.
