Offshore Renminbi Facts

Renminbi is the official currency of the People’s Republic of China, and means “people’s currency” in Mandarin. The yuan is a unit of the currency. Renminbi and yuan are often used interchangeably. The communist party established the People’s Bank of China and issued the first RMB in December 1948, which was about a year before the Kuomintang government was defeated.

When shopping in China, a storekeeper might express prices in terms of kuai, which translates into “pieces,” and is similar to how Americans use “bucks” to mean dollars.
