In order to avoid counterfeiting, color-changing ink will be applied. The color of denomination figures and the band of light will change when adjusting the angle.
As for the coins, the model of denomination figures on the front side and flower patterns on the reverse side are adjusted.
The new one-yuan coin will be smaller since the diameter has been narrowed 2.75mm. The color of five-jiao coin will be nickle, instead of golden yellow inside. The new one-jiao coin will increase dots ringing the inner edge on the front.
The second edition of the series was issued in 2005, and the one-yuan banknotes and coins and five-jiao coins have not upgraded since 1999. In order to improve the security, durability and anti-counterfeiting ability, it is time to upgrade and issue new currency.
- Why upgrade the edition of RMB?
Yes. The previous edition of rmb will also be circulated and applied after the issuance of the new one. However, companies with cash businesses should upgrade their machines to identify and adapt the new rmb notes.
