The Chinese Customs Gold Units, issued in Shanghai in 1930, served as vital instruments for customs payments. However, their significance expanded during and post-World War II, as they became widely circulated. Notable for featuring Sun Yat-sen on the obverse and the Customs building on the reverse, these notes were issued by the Central Bank of China. The promise to pay the bearer fifty Customs Gold Units in Shanghai, 1930, was backed by the bank. Printed by the American Bank Note Company, production of these notes extended into the 1940s, shaping the economic landscape of Shanghai significantly.
