We can help you to find the best Chinese yuan exchange rate by comparing a wide range of UK travel money suppliers who have Chinese yuan in stock and ready to order online now. Our comparisons automatically factor in all costs and commission, so all you need to do is tell us how much you want to spend and we'll show you the top suppliers who fit the bill.

Compare before you buy

Some of the best travel money deals are only available when you buy online. By using a comparison site, you're more likely to see the full range of deals on offer and get the best rate.

Order online

Always place your order online, even if you plan to collect your currency in person. Most supermarkets and high street currency suppliers offer better exchange rates if you order online beforehand.

Combine orders

If you're travelling with others, consider placing one large currency order instead of buying individually. Many currency suppliers offer enhanced rates that improve as you order more.

The official currency of China is the 'renminbi' which literally translates to 'the people's currency', but individual monetary units are expressed in 'yuan' (prounced yoo-an) which means 'round object' or 'coin'.

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.
