China was the first country to use paper money. Ancient paper money can be traced back to the Pai-Lu P'i-pi (white deer-skin money) of Han Dynasty (140 BC) and the Fei-Chien (flying money) of Tang Dynasty (618 AD).
However, the Ming Dynasty notes are the earliest surviving paper money of which the 1 Kuan is the most common. Issued between 1368 and 1399, the note measures 222mm x 340mm.
