The oldest bank notes are the "Hying
money" or "convenient money," 'first
issued in China 2i!)7 B. C. Originally
these notes were issued by tho treasury,
but experience dictated a change to tho
system of banks under government in
spection and control. The early Chi
nese "greenbacks" were in all essentials
similar to the modern bank notes, bear
ing the name of the bank, the date of
issue, the number of the note, the signa
ture of the official issuing it, indications
of its value in figures, in words and in
the pictorial representation of coins or
heaps of coins equal in amount to its
face value, and a notice of tho pains
and penalties for counterfeiting. Over
and above all was a laconic exhortation
to industry and thrift "Produce all
you can; .spend with economy." Tho
notes were printed in blue Ink on paper
made from the tibro of the mulberry
tree. One issued in 131)0 is preserved
in tbo Asiatic Museum it St. Petersburg.
