Commemorative Banknote of the
Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022

To celebrate and commemorate the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022, Bank of China (Hong Kong) takes great pleasure in issuing the Commemorative Banknote of the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 in the denomination of HK$20 (the “Commemorative Banknote”).
The design of the Commemorative Banknote takes its inspiration from a famous line found in a classic moon-themed Chinese poem, “From Far Away You Share This Moment With Me”, which reflects the Hong Kong people’s fondness for the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 and the motherland. The front side of the Commemorative Banknote features the emblem of the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 and the Bank of China Tower in Hong Kong, adorned by snowflakes that evoke the Olympic Winter Games.
In a change from the traditional horizontal banknote design, the reverse side of the Commemorative Banknote is vertically orientated, depicting the Great Wall of China set against a silhouette of Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour under the shimmering moonlight. Winter athletes valiantly traverse the tracks and pistes that bind the two iconic landmarks together. Bringing to life the poetry of the line “as the bright moon shines over the sea, from far away you share this moment with me”, these illustrations signify the best wishes and support of the Hong Kong people towards the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022.
The Commemorative Banknote has multiple advanced security features, including dynamic shimmering pattern, enhanced watermark (snowflake) and windowed metallic thread, etc.
The Commemorative Banknote is the legal tender of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, but not intended to be used as general local banknotes in circulation. All the Commemorative Banknotes are packaged and sold at prices higher than their face values.
Bank of China (Hong Kong) strives to fulfil its corporate social responsibility and takes part in charitable activities in Hong Kong. Proceeds generated from the sales of the Commemorative Banknote, after deducting the relevant costs, will be donated for local charity cause.
A total of 2,000,000 Commemorative Banknotes will be issued. They are packed as Single Note, 4-in-1 Uncut Notes and 35-in-1 Uncut Notes, for a total of 1,600,000 sets. Meanwhile, 200 Charity Sets of the Commemorative Banknote have also been selected for public bidding. Details will be announced in due course.
