The Hong Kong one hundred and fifty dollar note is a commemorative banknote issued by the Standard Chartered Bank (Hong Kong) on 1 October 2009 to commemorate on the 150th Anniversary of the Standard Chartered Hong Kong branch. [1] It is the world's first 150-dollar denomination banknote.[2] Approximately 750,000 notes were issued. Owing to its rarity and expected higher re-sale value, the notes are unlikely to enter circulation, though they are still considered legal tender.
