The Chinese characters for “yuan,” “jiao” and “fen” are “元,” “角” and “分.”

The Chinese characters for RMB are 人民币 (rénmínbì). Anyone helps me learn Chinese characters for “yuan,” “jiao” and “fen?” I just know the Chinese pinyin for them. Thanks!

I want to learn Chinese characters for RMB. Anyone can help me?
