The name 'renimbi' literally means 'peoples currency'. It's the legal currency of mainland China.



It's easily exchanged in Hong Kong and Macau but it's not the official currency there.

Your service is fast, dependable, and save us having to find places overseas to get our currency. Love your refund policy too, although we’ve never had to return I used money. Gives us a reason (as if we needed one!) to return to Europe to spend it!
