Hong Kong cent

Hong Kong is a small island near China. It is a former British colony which was reverted back to control of the people's republic of China on July 1, 1997. It has been a haven for fishermen-pirates and opium smugglers, and was acceded to the British in 1842 after the conclusion of the first Opium War(1839-1842). The legends on the coins of Hong Kong have been bilingual for a long time with both English and Chinese writings on them; and even after being acceded to China, Hong Kong retains its currency.
