Your Chinese yuan buyback questions answered

What is the best Chinese yuan buy back rate?

Right now the best Chinese yuan to pound buy back rate is 9.2818 based on our live comparison of 7 UK currency suppliers. At this rate, 1 Chinese yuan is worth £0.11. Today's worst Chinese yuan buy back rate is 10.3245 (£0.10 per Chinese yuan).

There is 10.1% difference between today's best and worst rates which means if you sold ¥1500 right now you'd get £16.32 more by going with the best offer.

When is the best time to sell Chinese yuan?

The best time to sell Chinese yuan is when the Chinese yuan is performing strongly relative to the pound. That's the technically-correct answer, but it's not very helpful. What people really want to know is: how can I time the market just right to maximise the value of my Chinese yuan when I sell them?

You can get a good idea of how competitive today's Chinese yuan buy back rate is relative to the past using our historical Chinese yuan to pound charts, but beyond that it's impossible to say exactly when you should sell. If historical data shows that the buy back rate is poor right now, you can choose to hold on to your Chinese yuan for a future holiday or to sell at a later date. Otherwise, don't worry about trying to time the market; just sell whenever is most convenient for you and enjoy the money!

Where is the best place to exchange Chinese yuan to pounds?

We found 7 currency suppliers in the UK who are exchanging Chinese yuan to pounds right now. The best Chinese yuan buy back rate is 9.2818 which is being offered by Currency Online Group. At this rate, ¥1500 would be worth £161.61 if you sold right now.

Can I deposit Chinese yuan into a UK bank account?

You cannot deposit Chinese yuan directly into a UK bank account, but if you sell your Chinese yuan online with any of our buyers they will automatically convert your currency into British pounds and deposit them into your UK bank account so you can withdraw or spend them as usual.

If you want to receive or transfer Chinese yuan from one bank account to another, check out our money transfer comparisons for live transfer rates.

Can I exchange Chinese yuan coins for cash?

Most bureau de change will not buy back Chinese yuan coins because they are heavy to transport and difficult to exchange at the bank. If you're stuck with a bunch of change that you can't get rid of, consider keeping hold of it for a future holiday or donate it to a charity of your choice who will be glad to receive any coins regardless of value.

Is it safe to send Chinese yuan in the post?

When posting your Chinese yuan, we recommend you use Royal Mail's Special Delivery service which is fully insured and guaranteed to arrive on the next working day. Packages sent by Special Delivery go through a more secure process than regular mail and can be tracked from the moment they enter the system right up to the point of delivery where they must be signed for by the supplier. It is very rare for Royal Mail to lose a Special Delivery package, but in the unlikely event this does happen Royal Mail will refund you the entire insured amount plus postage costs. You can also reclaim your postage costs if Royal Mail do not deliver your currency on time.

When you purchase Special Delivery you'll be given an option to insure your package for up to £2,500 and you'll be presented a receipt which contains a tracking number and proof of postage. If you are sending more than £2,500 worth of Chinese yuan, you can split them up into multiple packages and insure each package for an appropriate amount.

The cost of Special Delivery varies depending on the amount you've insured the package for, but we estimate this cost for you in our comparison results above. You should ensure that your Chinese yuan are securely packaged before you post them; we recommend you use a plastic tamper-proof envelope that you can obtain from the Post Office when you purchase Special Delivery. If you are in any doubt, just ask the Post Office clerk to check your package before you send it and they will advise you on whether it is suitably packaged and insured.

How and when will I be paid for my Chinese yuan?

For orders sent by post you'll be paid by Bank Transfer within 3 working days from the day you currency is received. For orders exchanged in person you'll be paid immediately in cash.

What happens if the buy back rate changes before my Chinese yuan have been received?

The Chinese yuan buy back rate you receive will be the prevailing rate on the day your currency is received. This rate does not usually change significantly from day to day but it does mean you may receive slightly more or slightly less than the amount quoted today.

If you're unhappy with the final amount received, you can arrange to have your currency returned minus postage costs.

Can I sell Chinese yuan that are old, withdrawn or out-of-circulation?

Every so often, a country will update it's currency and issue a new set of notes or coins whilst simultaneously withdrawing the old ones. The withdrawn currency is usually accepted for a while after the issue of the new currency to allow a for graceful transition to take place, but eventually the old currency will cease to become legal tender. Once this happens, the old currency cannot usually be exchanged.

If you're unsure whether the Chinese yuan you have can still be exchanged, we recommend you contact the buyer beforehand and they will gladly help you to determine whether your notes can be accepted.

Most currency suppliers won't buy back Chinese yuan coins. If you're stuck with a bunch of change that you can't get rid of, keep hold of it for a future holiday or consider donating it to charity.
