General note

Currency used at B.C. Hops, Sardis by Chinese workers some of whom would send money home to China. Men worked in the hop fields tending plants by doing such tasks as hoeing around each plant. Two Chinese foremen, a father and son supervised the work. The main fields were located where Cottonwood Mall and the Shell Station are now. During World War One (circa 1914), there were one hundred twenty Chinese men working for B.C. Hops in Sardis.

General note

The currency was issued by the Central Bank of China during the period of the Republic of China (1912-1949).
