    My understanding is that notes like this are stamped/printed on a polymer base. There is 5 grams of silver applied to form the design, but the contents are not exactly pure silver if you include the base. That is why it is flexible and stable. I have seen some extraordinarily attractive notes that were created this way in both gold and silver.

    that is good to know Peter, i often wondered how 5 grams could stretch that far and be that pliable. It makes sense that they work with a base. Still beautiful though!

    Hi Peter your are right that some silver note is printed and even mix with polymer base. However this is not the case for majority of china official mint like Nanjing and GCIC silver note and not even for some china mint private note. The nano technology and hardening technology have been exist many years ago and make things happen. I get no minting photo from Nanjing Mint because it is patented technology owned by them. I still searching one china private mint photo pf printing the note which show pure silver than laminate with polymer to strengthen the surface for transportation purpose.

    THIS IS POLYMER BASE NOTE AS QUOTED BY YOU

    WITHOUT mixing with polymer BUT the size is smaller which not using nanotechnology.

    NOTE WITHOUT mixing any polymer by using NANOTECHNOLOGY without patented technology of Nanjing Mint. Bigger surface and not strengthen by laminate polymer like Nanjing Mint. A cap is used to prevent breaking during transport.

    Hi Andrew,

    FWIW, I recently saw a senior marketing official from the People's Bank in Beijing. I asked about the Nanjing gold and silver notes, if they have a polymer base? The puzzled reply I got was, "Of course they do. How else would you do it?" I don't think anything was lost in translation.

    Hi Peter,

    Metal mix with Polymer is one case.

    With Polymer laminate is another case.

    I read it as metal mix with Polymer as your message.

    Do I get it mix up?

    A banker marketer does not work in mint who might not know the technical stuff.

    I also amaze the 1/10 gold foil by Aurum as photo in this thread which state 24K PURE GOLD. Are they mix with polymer ? If yes will this consider wrong in USA ? They sell very well in USA.

    It is not clear to me at all, either. I plan to continue to ask questions to get a definite answer.

    The areas where coins are minted have very limited access by national regulation. Only certain mint employees can enter. Banknotes printing is not as heavily restricted, though.

    It is not permitted for a visitor to bring a phone or camera into production areas. Staff? I can't say.
