On Taiwan’s money, have you noticed more than just the nation’s founding father Dr. Sun Yat-sen and the late President Chiang Kai-shek? What other images can be found on Taiwan’s banknotes?
Taiwan is blessed with a great diversity of animal life, which are presented on its money. Taiwanese endemic species of the Formosan sika deer, Mikado pheasant, and Formosan landlocked salmon are also printed on the NT.500, NT.1000, and NT.2000 bills.
The Central Bank of the Republic of China (Taiwan) designs Taiwanese banknotes inspired by local culture, which is why we find nationally treasured animals, historical buildings, indigenous flora and fauna, and Taiwan’s majestic mountains on proud display.
