What does CNH stand for? What is the difference between CNY and CNH?

CNH stands for the offshore RMB (Chinese Yuan) traded outside the mainland China, mostly in HongKong. CNY is the Yuan traded within mainland China.

Thus CNY and CNH both refer to the Chinese currency, Yuan(RMB). One major difference between CNY and CNH is that the exchange rate of offshore Yuan CNH is floating and impacted majorly by the private demand of the Yuan. Instead, CNY’s exchange rate against foreign currencies will be more subject to the national currency policy. Generally speaking, the value of offshore money CNH is little more than that of the CNY due to the excess market demand as well as the strong Yuan status.
