A Chinese internet user has found a regrettable printing mistake in the recently-issued special 10-yuan banknotes emblazoned with Olympic patterns, reports.

In his online blog, the netizen ¨C who identifies himself as A Naughty Lion - said the dome of the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest was separated from the main structure and wrongly printed in the bottom of the note.

The Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest, a landmark building in the south Beijing's Temple of Heaven, is outlined on top of the banknotes with the Beijing Olympic logo printed on.

The notes, also featuring the newly-built National Stadium or the Bird's Nest below the prayer hall, were sold out in no time after hitting counters on Tuesday.

The Chinese central bank issued 6 million Olympic notes to commemorate the upcoming Games. But the price of the notes shot up after the publication in a spate of questions over the less-than-expected quantity.

The notes have been priced at more than 5,000 yuan by some online retailers, more than 500 times its par value.
