Ration coupons for expats on display at Fudan

HUNDREDS of historical certificates, including ration coupons necessities issued to expatriates and bond certificates issued overseas, went on display in Shanghai today.

The exhibition contains 500-plus paper certificates, which were issued between the end of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) and 1933. Nearly 10 collectors from around the country provided the certificates. Once the exhibition ends, the certificates will be returned to the collectors. The entire collection is estimated to be worth tens of millions of yuan. Some of them are top-level cultural relics.

The exhibition contains cloth ration coupons issued by the city government to expats in 1952, when only about 3,000 foreigners lived in Shanghai.

The exhibition is free to the public and it will last until September 12. The exhibition is open Tuesday to Sunday from 9:30am to 4pm at Fudan University's Humanities Building.
