The second series of Renminbi banknotes was introduced on March 1, 1955. Together with the introduction of the second series, the decimal point was moved 4 places to the left. As a result, one first series ¥10,000 note is equivalent to one second series ¥1 note.


Each note has the words "People's Bank of China" as well as the denomination in the UyghurTibetan and Mongolian (but not Zhuang, as the Zhuang alphabet was not invented yet) languages on the back, which has since appeared in each series of Renminbi notes.

The denominations available were:
