Generous Tianjin parents give 99 rolls of uncut bills worth 10 million yuan as part of the dowry to their daughter ahead of lavish wedding
Wealthy Tianjin parents gave their daughter a gorgeous dowry that included real estate properties, luxury cars, and 99 rolls of uncut banknotes of various currencies, Chinese netizens revealed recently.
Attendees to the wedding ceremony said that just the 99 rolls of uncut banknotes are worth 10 million RMB.
99 is a lucky number in China which has an implied meaning of everlasting and unchanging love.
The real estate properties the generous parents gave their daughter as dowry included brand name ones located in Tianjin and Beijing where property price is sky-high, which means they can be worth millions of yuan.
The luxurious limousines were understandably worth at least one million yuan.
Properties and luxury cars are common dowries for daughters of the wealthy Chinese parents, but few Chinese have ever heard of uncut banknotes, which are usually issued in limited volume and often collected as a hobby or investment globally, according to online knowledge.
The extravagant dowry has drawn wishes but more jeers as well as criticism from Chinese online spectators.
