PMG Attributing New Variety of China 1980 5 Yuan Notes
Posted on 4/25/2018
Paper Money Guaranty (PMG) is now attributing a new variety of China's 1980 5 Yuan note.
Attributed as 886f, the front of these notes exhibits a “green fluorescence” under ultraviolet light on the crane, pines and flower. (The “f” stands for fluorescence.)

These fluorescent properties have also been observed on replacement notes, which will be attributed as 886f*.
These varieties will be attributed automatically for no additional fee for eligible notes.
The "Verdant Pines & Crane" pedigree is the only additional notation that will be used with Pick 886f and Pick 886f*. It is used exclusively for submissions from a specific PMG Authorized Dealer.
No additional attributions or special pedigrees will be accepted for this variety.
This new variety follows PMG’s decision to attribute other Chinese fluorescent varieties, including:
- the Pick 885af 1980 2 Yuan variety (and 885af* for replacements). To read more, click here.
- the Pick 884bf 1980 1 Yuan variety (and 884bf* for replacements). To read more, click here.
- the Pick 885bf 1990 2 Yuan variety (and 885bf* for replacements). To read more, click here.
Please note that recognition and attribution of varieties is solely at PMG's discretion.
