The background has incorporated the magnificent Great Wall and the press release of the founding of the Bank of China in 1912, representing that Bank of China, with a long history, will pursuit the commitment to excellence, the philosophy of steady operation, be customer oriented and trustworthy. In the middle of the front, there is a number “100” in Chinese calligraphy to highlight the commemorative theme of the note.
