Hong Kong Currency Note observations

Take a close look at these notes and tell me if you see anything unique about them.

In most of the countries worldwide, all currency notes are issued by one regulatory bank- such as RBI in India. However, when I got for Hong Kong Dollars, I noticed names of commercial banks on them. In Hong Kong 3 different banks have been authorized to issue currency notes.
Thus you can see names of Standard Chartered Bank, HSBC and Bank of China on them.

I did learn from Wikipedia that there are few other countries in the world where similar situation exists. (UK seems to be one of them, I’ve not been there yet)

With that, I think it is enough clue which direction I am headed next. Stay tuned for updates
