(above) of 9 picturesque all
different food ration money, rice or grain
coupons all dated 1988.
Condition: UNC as in new (some XF-to-UNC).
Depicted are all of the 9 rice or grain ration money
coupons included in the set.
These food ration money coupons (rice coupons; grain
coupons) allow the bearer to buy a certain amount/weight
of rationed foodstuffs. Rationed foodstuffs included rice,
flour and cooking oils. These coupons are called
(grain and commodity ration coupons).
The average ration was 15 kilograms for a man and 13
kilograms for a woman each month, though it varied
with age, profession and location. Meat was much scarcer
and it was rationed at Ban Jin (0.25 kilogram or about
pound) per person per month.
These coupons were given per person, no matter how poor
or rich that person was, therefore these food ration
(also known as: rice coupons) are much scarcer than
Chinese Yuan banknotes.
The "Rice Coupon" set contains ration coupons
from and issued by the Nanbu County, Sichuan Province,
