There is almost no difference between the two. The renminbi is also known as the official currency of China. If it were translated, it would mean, “people’s money.” The symbol of this is CNY or CNH if you are in Hong Kong. You will usually see it with the symbol ¥. There is only one slight difference between the renminbi and the yuan.
