Beautifully minted with the Tian'anmen or Gates of Heavenly Peace and the distant image of the Forbidden City, this nice 2 Fen coin holds the National Symbols of modern China and its capital Pekin.The currency of the People's Republic of China is the "Yuan" and since 1948 it holds a surname called the "Renminbi" but it is mostly known as the Yuan. Its monetary code is the CNY. Many adjustments have been made to all the currency by the People's Central Bank since 1978, mostly in denominations for printed money items and artistic designs. Most Chinese modern currency is sober and simple in features of art and design, and yet being practical it also holds beauty and organized carved, minted or printed elements.This is an attractive acquisition to my collected international coinage and currency.
