Lion Rock as backdrop - in tribute to the "Hong Kong Spirit"

The design concept behind Standard Chartered’s 2018 Hong Kong Banknotes Series is “Hong Kong Spirit”. It showcases our unique values by incorporating the city’s signature attributes.

The design has subtly embedded a special feature – when you put the five banknotes together, their backgrounds form a silhouette of the Lion Rock, which is considered the pride of Hong Kong and a symbol of the “Hong Kong spirit”.

The new series was created jointly by the Standard Chartered team and a team of local designers, with the support of a group of technical experts from Germany. We hope to bring to Hong Kong a new series of banknotes that is truly made by Hong Kong, made for Hong Kong, and made with Hong Kong.
