Hunting Season...

...Is Opened

“The People’s Bank of China has issued a commemorative RMB10 bank note to commemorate China successfully holding of the 2008 Summer Olympic
The notes feature the “Birds Nest” National Stadium on the front and a Greek discus thrower on the reverse. This is the first issuance of a bank note since 1999 that does not feature a portrait of Chairman Mao, however only six million of them have been released for circulation, ensuring their instant status as a collector’s item.”

Let’s see, there are 15+ million inhabitants in Beijing and only 6 million bank notes have been issued…. Wonder what are my chances of getting hold of one?
