A history of banking in China, starting with the history of the monetary system in China and its coinage.

Wong Kai Kah was the Vice Commissioner to the St. Louis Exposition in 1903, which is presumably the event during which he gave this paper before the Round Table in St. Louis. 1903 was described as the first year China "officially" exhibited at a World's Fair.

Wong Kai Kah was also a graduate of Yale University (class of 1883) and a prominent figure in the late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century Chinese government.
