The primary image on the reverse side of the new five Yuan note is the splendid view of the sunrise over a sea of clouds at Mount Tai in Shandong province. 

The stone inscription in the foreground is from the summit of Mount Tai, with four giant Chinese characters proclaiming "wuyueduzun"(the most respected of the Five Sacred Mountains). Mount Tai is famous for its grandness, with splendid natural scenery and rich cultural relics. It has been a source of inspiration to artists and scholars.

"There's no need to visit other mountains when you've been to the Five Sacred Mountains," Chinese folk wisdom says. The majestic Mount Tai has been regarded as the chief of the five Taoist Sacred Mountains. Confucius and the great poet Dufu both made poems illustrating their respect "From the summit of Mount Tai you will see how small the surrounding Mountains appear as they lie below you".

Mt Taishan has been the object of imperial pilgrimage for thousands of years, which made it superior over any other mountains within China. Emperors regularly visited Mount Tai showing their admiration for Confucianism and respect for Confucius, leaving behind a number of precious historical relics. According to historical records, there were 72 emperors offering imperial sacrifices here. In 1987, Mount Tai was designated as a World Natural and Cultural Heritage by UNESCO.
