Launch of the Virtual Money Museum

The Central Bank officially launched the Virtual Money Museum. Welcome to visit the website at http://museum.cbc.gov.tw.

(1) Historical development of notes and coins; anecdotes.
(2) Notes and coins in recent R.O.C. history, in particular their development in Taiwan, with images of notes and coins from all eras.
(3) The life cycle of the New Taiwan dollar notes and coins: a numismatic movie available to the public and showing the whole process—from design, printing/minting and issuance, to withdrawal and destruction.
(4) Multimedia presentation of security features with advice on proper verification methods.
