About This Series

The Banque de l’Indo-Chine series of French Cochinchina in the World Currency contains 12 distinct entries.
The Banque de l’Indo-Chine (Bank of Indo-China, BIC) was founded in Paris, France on 21 January 1875, with plans to operate in French India and French Cochinchina, hence the name. Over time, the BIC opened 28 branches and agencies around the world, only some of which were places of issue indicated on notes. The bank’s name appears on its notes initially as Banque de l’Indo-Chine (hyphenated) and Banque de l’Indochine (one word) from the mid-1920s onward, often with a branch name stamped or printed. From 1875 to 1920s, the Banque de l’Indo-Chine issued similar families of notes in various countries that can be easily mistaken for one another at first glance, so take care to distinguish them by the dates of the decrees printed at upper center front, branch names below, and different colors.
