The Renminbi (RMB, sign: ¥; code: CNY; also CN¥, and CN) is the official currency of the People's Republic of China (PRC).

Renminbi (RMB) if it’s translated it means Peoples Money.

The word Yuan in Chinese literally means round, after the shape of the coins.

In spoken Chinese, "Yuan" is often called as "kuai" and the "jiao" as"mao". Fen-denomination RMB is rarely used.

Chinese Currency is called Renminbi (RMB or CNY) means "People's Currency" in Chinese language.

One Yuan is subdivided into 10 Jiao which in turn is subdivided into 10 fens

Renminbi banknotes are available in denominations from 1 Jiao to 100 Yuan (¥0.1–100)

As a honest nation china do not have currency notes more than 100.

Always remember a nation which got the currency note of more than 100 that means the country is corrupt and politicians love the corruption and they are involved in corruption.

One Yuan is divided into 10 jiao.

One jiao is divided into 10 fen, pennies in English.

Renminbi currency production is carried out by a state owned corporation, China Banknote Printing and Minting [CBPMC] headquartered in Beijing.

High grade paper for the banknotes is produced at two facilities in Baoding and Kunshan

In India we import the paper for printing the notes I do not know why we can not produce high grade paper in India.

The People's Bank of China has its own printing technology research division that researches new techniques for creating banknotes and making counterfeiting more difficult.

• 900 BC: First metal coins were invented in China.

• 221 BC to 210 BC: As part of the unification of China, a uniform copper coin was used as a national currency during the Qin Dynasty.

• 210 BC to 960 AD: Various of metal coins made of copper, iron, or lead were used in China as currencies. During certain time of this period, because of lack of management or poor decision making of the emperors, people were allowed to make their own coins, thus causing major inflation and disruption of the functions of the currencies.

• 1271 AD to 1368 AD: The Mongolian Yuan Dynasty created a national system of paper currency not backed by silver or gold. It was the world's first fiat currency. However, the inflation in 1260 caused the government to replace the existing paper currency with a new paper currency in 1287, but inflation caused by undisciplined printing remained a problem for the Yuan court until the end of the Dynasty in 1368.

• 1368 AD to 1644 AD: A form of paper currency experienced rapid inflation and issues were suspended in 1450 although notes remained in circulation until 1573. In 1423 AD, silver, flowed in from overseas, became a legal tender for payment of taxes. Most of the silver came from Latin America.

• 1644 AD to 1889 AD: China used a silver and a copper currency system. Paper from of promissory notes were also used during this period. Shanxi Province was one of the financial centers in China.

Euro had a good chance to replace USD as a dominant currency, but they messed it up. I don't think Chinese currency (whose name I am hearing for the first time now) has any chance of replacing USD in the near future. Think about this also - How much does 100 RMB convert to INR?
