Coin Story

Shanghai, literally 'Above the Sea', is a port city on the estuary of the famed Yangtze River, and has been around as a village since the Song Dynasty, a thousand years or so ago.

Originally a fishing and textiles town, Shanghai is now the commercial and financial centre of mainland China after rapid re-development began in the 1990s. It is China’s largest metropolis on the mainland with a population of more than 24 million.

Shanghai is a fascinating mix of East and West. Across from the original settlement of Puxi is the Pudong New Area. Its modern and ever-expanding skyline includes the emblematic Orient Pearl Tower, while The Shanghai Museum has one of the best collections of Chinese historical artifacts in the world.

Easily China's richest city and the leading trendsetter in fashion, design and the arts, Shanghai is the best city in the country for shopping and dining. It has been described as the "showpiece" of the booming economy of mainland China.
