Hong Kong Braille Note

Hong Kong is to follow China’ s lead and begin to produce banknotes with Braille and embossed lines for the visually impaired, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority announced on Tuesday.

China has issued its yuan banknotes in Braille for several years.

The new Hong Kong notes will be phased in over the next two years and will feature Braille at the bottom left corner of each note, together with embossed lines that correspond with each notes value.
