Saw the 10 Yuan bi-metal coin.  Would be great if a silver proof was minted.

Anything to get the monster Madman Mao's face off of the currency is a welcome sight. A dog would even be better than the murderous Mao!!!!  70 million Chinese  murdered during this despot's iron-fist rule. He made Hitler and Stalin look like Kindergarten kids. How sad indeed!

The mintage of 10 and 100 Yuan banknotes are too high to be considered as a good investment. It is fine for collector. I prefer the lucky money sheet issued 10 days ago by Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP). The eight 2 dollar sheet has a first four digits 8888 in serial # and the mintage is 16888.

Disclosure: I bought some when it issued.

Actually, there are two sellers at eBay now. One sold three sheets at $88 and the other sold 3 sheets at $108.  This sheet is still available at the link (BEP on line store) I provided for $58.88.

I also bought two of these uncut sheet, if the aerospace note actually get into circulation, then 300 million copies are not that much. I bet people will be using them for lucky money for their kids during New Year celebration.
