In the denomination of HK$100, the Commemorative Banknote is tinted mainly in red, an auspicious and iconic colour, representing jubilation and passion. The front side of the Banknote features the spectacular Great Wall of China and the grand Bank of China Building in Beijing, symbolising the solid foundations and unique capabilities of BOC given its long history. On reverse side of the Banknote is the modern metropolis of Hong Kong as an international financial centre with the famous landmark - Bank of China Tower. These prominent features provide a perfect representation of BOC as a global brand and the Bank's contribution to Hong Kong's long-term stability and prosperity.

All such banknotes are packaged and sold at prices higher than their face values, proceeds generated from the sales of the Banknotes, after deducting the face values and all the relevant costs (including the design, printing, packaging, marketing and distribution, and the like), will all be donated to the BOCHK Charitable Foundation and other charitable organisations of Hong Kong.
