From Beijing News:
The interesting discovery was made by Chinese netizens, who posted on forum recently showing that there are three cats’ images on the 100 RMB bill, right besides the image of Mao Zedong. What’s really interesting is that two small cats are worshiping the big one.
Zooming in the 100 RMB bill, they found that the big cat is standing with mouth open. Its eyes are like Chinese old time coins, staring at front. The two small cats besides it are kneeling down, rising up their front legs, and worshipping to the big one just like people do.
“An imagination” according to coin experts
Yuan Yinlong, a coin expert pointed out that the image popular on Internet is a little different from the original image on the bill and is all but an imagination of the netizens. The most significant difference is that the original image does not have the big cat’s whiskers.
He also emphasis that the design of RMB bill should be examined very carefully and could not used the worshiping cats as images. The so called “worshiping cats” images should be the anti-forgery technology design that is the state secret, which can only be explained by People’s Bank of China – the issuing bank.
Could be the “patriotic mark”
Yuan introduced that this kind of mark is not rare in history. For instance, the 200 RMB bills, which were issued by central bank of Wang Jingwei puppet government in 1944 had the tiny mark of “US-AC”, meaning the US are coming. At that time, China and United States formed an alliance to fight Japan. The Chinese designer at that time made this to show his patriotism.
