Banknote Book & CPG® PRICE GUIDE

Catalog & market information for bank notes issued by Farmers Bank of Northwest Shansi (Sibei Nung Min Inxang)

The institution known in Chinese as 西北農民銀行 (Northwest Farmers Bank, FNW) was founded in 1940 in the northwest of Shanxi Province, which itself is in the northeast of China. The majority of notes carry no English bank name, instead they have an additional Chinese name (Sibei Nung Min Inxang) in the now defunct Latinxua Sin Wenz (Latinized New Script) on back. A very small, but unknown, number of notes carry one of two English bank translations: Farmers Bank of Northwest Shansi or Farmers Bank of Northwest China. The latter translation is likely an error as Shanxi Province is not in the northwest of China.
