The ten-dollar note was first produced in 1868 by the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation with the formal adoption of a currency system just for Hong Kong. There have been various issued by banks which were phased out with the introduction of the ten dollar coin in 1994. Due to demand the banknote was reissued in 2002 in paper form, this was changed to polymer in 2007 as a trial of this product.
The ten-dollar note is the only denomination that is issued by the government of Hong Kong. It is primarily purple in colour.
