About Hong Kong Dollar

The Hong Kong Dollar is the official currency of Hong Kong (whose official name is Hong Kong Special Administrative Region). Its ISO 4217 code is HKD. For prices, the symbol $ or HK $ is usually used. Each Hong Kong Dollar is divided into 100 cents.

Hong Kong and China

Hong Kong belongs to China, however it is considered a special administrative region. It is a region that was colonized by the United Kingdom until 1997 and after decolonization, they could not adhere to the communist system of the rest of China since their administration had not followed communism. For this reason Hong Kong was administratively independent of China and today enjoys a certain autonomy and a system closer to the West. For this reason it also has its own currency.

History of the currency of Hong Kong

Until 1863 there was no own currency in Hong Kong and they used the Chinese currency or multiple foreign currencies such as the British Pound, the Indian Rupee, the Spanish Real or the Mexican Peso. From this year the first coins of Hong Kong Dollars were minted. A few years later, the first bills also began to be issued.

However it was not until 1935 when it was definitively established as the official currency of Hong Kong territory. With the exception of the years of Japanese occupation during World War II (between 1941 and 1945), when the official currency was the Japanese military Yen, the use of the Hong Kong Dollar has been extended until today.

Currently the coins are minted by the Government and the banknotes are issued by three banks licensed by the government: the Standard Chartered Bank, the HSBC and the Bank of China.

There are two notes of 10 Hong Kong Dollars: one of polymer and another of paper. The other denominations are issued by the three banks and there are three series: the year 2003 and the year 2010 with all denominations and a third that began to be issued in 2018 from which to date only the 100, 500 and 1,000 notes are in circulation Dollars.
