Listing Detail Tabs

This listing is for 4 uncirculated 1983 Chinese Commodity Ration Coupons. The denominations are 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 5 Jin.
With the unit measurement denoting the weight (not currency) of the produce. Measured in jin (about 0.5 kilo)

China began issuing commodity ration coupons (known as liang piao) in the 1950s, with specific coupons issued for foodstuffs, fuel, even bicycles. Without them you were not permitted to purchase the goods. The system, which was only finally abolished in 1995, ensured that under the collective system, everyone got their fair share.

These coupons were given per person, no matter how poor or rich that person was, therefore these food ration coupons (also known as rice coupons) were and are much scarcer than Chinese RMB Yuan bank notes.
