Chinese yuan to pounds Sterling

One Chinese yuan (¥) can be subdivided into 10 jiǎo (meaning 'corner') and 100 fēn ('fraction'). There are six denominations of Chinese yuan banknotes in circulation: ¥1, ¥5, ¥10, ¥20, ¥50 and ¥100; and three coin denominations: ¥0.1, ¥0.5 and ¥1.

The current series of Chinese yuan banknotes in circulation is the 'Fifth Series' which was first introduced by the People's Bank of China in 1999. Each banknote in the series features distinct designs that showcase important landmarks, cultural elements, and historical figures of China. For instance, the ¥1 note displays the image of the Great Wall of China. The ¥5 note features an illustration of the Three Gorges Dam on the Yangtze River. The ¥10 note depicts a portrait of Mao Zedong, the founding father of the People's Republic of China. The higher denominations - ¥20, ¥50, and ¥100 - feature images of iconic Chinese landscapes including the Guilin Mountains, the Potala Palace in Tibet, and the West Lake in Hangzhou.
