The first ever HK$150 banknotes, printed by Standard Chartered Bank (Hong Kong) to celebrate its 150-year presence in the city. The commemorative banknotes are legal tender, but no one in his right mind would try to buy anything with them. One million notes were printed. Initial offering price was HK$280 each. Net proceeds went to the bank's community foundation in support of local community projects and charities.

Back to Asia

Hong Kong, located on the southeastern coast of China, was a British colony from 1842 to 1997 when its sovereignty was transferred to China.

Hong Kong is governed as a Special Administrative Region of China. Under the terms of the Sino-British Joint Declaration, China has promised to give Hong Kong a relatively high degree of autonomy for at least 50 years after the transfer of sovereignty.
Under the "One Country, Two Systems" policy, Hong Kong retains its own legal system, currency, customs policy, cultural delegation, international sport teams, and immigration laws. China represents Hong Kong only in foreign affairs and defense.

For a more detailed country profile, see CIA World Factbook on Hong Kong.
