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.

Since its introduction, the euro has been adopted by several sovereign states that are not part of the European Union and include the Principality of Andorra, the Principality of Monaco, the Republic of San Marino, and the Vatican City, as well as by a number territories, departments and sovereign states of Eurozone countries including the Azores, the Canary Islands, and the Madeira Islands, among others. One (1) euro is equal to one hundred (100) euro cents.

It is also the second most traded currency worldwide, while it is estimated that it has surpassed the U.S. dollar in terms of the combined value of banknotes and coins in circulation. It is estimated that the euro is used by approximately 337 million Europeans on a daily basis.
