The Chukou yuan is the currency of the Empire of Chukou since 2014. Originally issued by the Imperial Bank of Chukou. The currency code is ECY and the common abbreviation was EC¥.


The current series of banknotes for the Chukou yuan began circulation in 2014. The current set includes banknotes for EC¥1, EC¥5, EC¥10, EC¥20, EC¥50 and EC¥100. Note that the EC¥0.1 and EC¥0.5 banknotes are not commonly used by consumers. This may be due to the tendencies of consumers to simply use multiple EC¥1 or EC¥5 bills to cover the range of the EC¥10, as well as using EC¥50 bills or credit/debit cards instead of the EC¥100 bill. Lack of government promotion may also be a contributing factor to the general lack of usage.
