The Chinese renminbi (symbol: ¥; currency code: CNY, CNH – when traded in Hong Kong –) is the official currency of the People’s Republic of China. It is often abbreviated as RMB or CN¥, to distinguish between it and other currencies with the same symbol. The basic unit of the renminbi is the yuan, which is often employed to refer to the Chinese currency in general. One (1) yuan is equal to ten (10) jiao, and one (1) jiao is equal to ten (10) fen.
The renminbi is issued by the People’s Bank of China and, as of 2015, is the fifth most heavily traded currency in the world.
During the Republic of China era, several different currencies were in circulation. These were replaced by one currency in 1948, issued by the People’s Bank of China after the Communist Party of China gained greater control. This currency eventually came to be known as the renminbi in 1949.
The Canadian dollar (symbol: $; currency code: CAD) is the official currency of Canada. To distinguish between it and other dollar-denominated currencies, the Canadian dollar is sometimes abbreviated as C$. One (1) Canadian dollar is equal to one hundred (100) cents.
The Canadian dollar is widely referred to by Canadians as the “loonie”, a term which forex traders and analysts also employ. This is due to the image of a loon on the one-dollar coin. The Canadian dollar is the fifth largest reserve currency in the world, behind the U.S. dollar, the euro, the Japanese yen and the pound sterling, and the seventh most traded currency in the forex market.
The Canadian dollar was preceded by the Canadian pound, which was introduced in 1841. A widespread need to adopt a decimal monetary system based on the U.S. dollar due to the proximity of the two countries and the increasing trading activities between the two lasted for years, before the Canadian dollar was eventually introduced in 1858. The Canadian Parliament passed the Uniform Currency Act in April 1871 to replace the currencies of all provinces with a common Canadian dollar.
