The People's Bank of China unveiled the first changes in 10 years to its largest denomination banknote today (August 10).
The 100 yuan note (worth around $16) has been updated with a handful of new features, which the central bank says will help to reduce counterfeiting and make it easier for machines to handle the notes.
