Foreign exchange certificates were issued between 1980 and 1994 by the People's Republic of China for foreigners who temporarily located in the country and overseas Chinese to secure government control over the foreign exchange traffic. These had to be used primarily for services such as hotel accommodations, public long-distance transports, international postal services, as well as in special shops ("Friendship stores"). The official rate for Yuan Renminbi was 1 FEC = 1 RMB, but unofficially up to 1.50 RMB were offered for 1 FEC. Trading with FEC was officially prohibited under penalty.
