Step back in time to old Hong Kong with coin collector Chen Po-hung

September 29, 2016

Collector Cheng Po-hung owns a shop that sells old currency and post cards at Sheung Wan. He’s known as a folk expert of Hong Kong history and regularly appears on TV programmes to explain old local stories.

“A four-floor building only cost about 1,000 Hong Kong dollars in Tai Kok Tsui 100 years ago,” he said. Through his coins, he takes us back to the old days of Hong Kong to explore the stories behind them. (Photo: Thomas Yau)
