For the first time in nearly a decade China is issuing new banknotes without the image of Chairman Mao Zedong.
The 10 yuan ($1.5; £0.75) notes instead feature Beijing's new Olympic stadium on the front, with an ancient Greek statue of a discus thrower on the back.
Both are set against the backdrop of the Temple of Heaven, sited in Beijing.
Six million of the new banknotes will be issued, but most notes in circulation will continue to feature Mao - the founder of Communist China.
