Hong Kong Note Printing


Hong Kong Note Printing

Hong Kong Note Printing Limited prints the bank notes of all the three note-issuing banks in Hong Kong.

The banknote printing plant was founded in 1984 by Thomas De La Rue in Tai Po. In April 1996, the Hong Kong Government purchased the plant through the Exchange Fund, and operated it under the current name. In March 1997, the Government sold 15% of the Company's issued share capital to the China Banknote Printing & Minting Corporation (CBPMC).

In October the same year, the Government sold 10% of the company's issued share capital to each of the three note-issuing banks in Hong Kong (total 30%), namely The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited, the Standard Chartered Bank (now Standard Chartered Bank (Hong Kong)), and the Hong Kong Branch of the Bank of China (now Bank of China (Hong Kong)).
