A junk is an ancient Chinese sailing vessel/ship design still in use today. Junks were developed during the Song Dynasty (960-1129) and were used as seagoing vessels as early as the 2nd century CE. They evolved in the later dynasties, and were used throughout Asia for extensive ocean voyages. They were found, and in lesser numbers are still found, throughout South-East Asia and India, but primarily in China, perhaps most famously in Hong Kong. Found more broadly today is a growing number of modern recreational junk-rigged sailboats.

The term junk may be used to cover many kinds of boat-ocean-going, cargo-carrying, pleasure boats, live-aboards. They vary greatly in size and there are significant regional variations in the type of rig, however they all employ fully battened sails.

On right and left sides are vertical ornaments of lotus, dragonflies and fish.

Denominations in numerals are in all corners. Centered in words.

Ponte Governador Nobre de CarvalhoGovernor Nobre de Carvalho Bridge (嘉樂庇總督大橋, Ponte Governador Nobre de Carvalho), also known as the Macau-Taipa Bridge (澳氹大橋), is a dual-lane two-way bridge connecting Macau Peninsula near Casino Lisboa and the island of Taipa at the northern slope of Taipa Pequena (Small Taipa Hill). It is the first bridge in Macau, to connect the peninsula and Taipa. It is locally known as "The Old Bridge" (舊大橋). The bridge is meant to take the shape of a dragon, with Casino Lisboa representing the dragon's head, and Taipa Monument on Taipa Pequena the dragon's tail.
