Yuan notes from 1940s - still valid?
  • Hello,

    A relative had passed and recently we found within
    a box of papers some old yuan money. Based on
    searching on line, these bills appear to be from the
    1940's with some even a bit earlier. My question
    is: are these bills still acceptable as currency or are
    they just historical artifacts or collectibles?

    Thanks to anyone who can provide some insight
    on this.
  • I very much doubt it given that the PRC only came into being in 1949. However, I'm sure the notes now have a greater value to collectors, so perhaps get some photos and send them to dealers in old notes for a valutaion.

Howdy, Stranger!
