The evolution of RMB notes
Updated: 2015-11-11 13:39
A new 100-yuan bank note will be released by the central bank on Thursday.
Part of the fifth set of bank notes introduced by the People's Bank of China (PBOC) in 1999, the 100-yuan bank note was last changed in 2005.
The design will stay largely the same as the 2005 series, but the new bank notes are harder to counterfeit and easier for machines to read.
The old version of the 100-yuan note will stay in circulation, the PBOC added.
The 100-yuan note is the largest denomination of the Chinese currency.
