The Chinese Renminbi ("人民币"), the official currency of the People's Republic of China, is issued by the People's Bank Of China (“中国人民银行”, a.k.a. PBOC), the monetary authority of the PRC. Though commonly used interchangeably, the Yuan is in fact the principle currency unit within the Renminbi. The units for the Renminbi are the Yuan (元), Jiao (角), Fen (分), where 1 Yuan = 10 Jiao = 100 Fen. The Yuan is the primary unit of the Renminbi. The Chinese Renminbi literally means the "People's Currency".

Abbreviations for the Renminbi include RMB, CNY.

The value of the RMB had historically been pegged to the U.S. dollar, but since 2005, the Renminbi exchange rate has been allowed to float around a fixed base rate. The base rate is determined by the PBOC, with a reference to a basket of world currencies.

RMB notes are available in the following amounts: 100, 50, 20, 10, 5, and 1 yuan, and beneath the 1-yuan level at 5 Jiao and 1 Fen.
