Last 120 days

Text Box: 	The ‘pataca’ banknotes are issued by the ‘Banco Nacional Ultramarino’ (BNU) and the Bank of China(BoC). The name "pataca" is derived from a formerly popular silver coin in Asia, the Mexican peso (eight reales), known in Portuguese as the pataca mexicana.  The Chinese name for the currency is yuan (圓), which is the same word for Chinese yuan, New Taiwan dollar, and Hong Kong dollar.
	On December 20, 1999, the day Macao was return to China, banknotes of all values (except for 10 patacas) by both banks were reissued with that date to commemorate the return.
