Tibet Paper Money Catalog with a Critical Bibliography by Wolfgang Bertsch

Paper money was only introduced into Tibet in the early 20th century and yet Tibetan banknotes are arguably the most attractive among world currencies. The designs on the banknotes include both religious and national symbols, such as the snow lion and the lung rta ("wind horse"), and most are printed in vivid colors.

The currency represents a unique blend of printing skills and the artistic genius inspired by a long historical tradition of painting in Tibet. Those banknotes which survive are a testament to Tibet's independent status prior to 1959, and serve as a tangible reminder of Tibetan material culture.
