The Chinese currency Renminbi, or the yuan,appreciated 23 basis points to an all-time high at 6.4898 per U.S. dollar on Friday, according to the China Foreign Exchange Trading system.
The yuan's fresh central parity rate scrapped the previous record of 6.4921 per U.S. dollar set on May 26.

The central parity rate of the RMB against the U.S. dollar is based on a weighted average of prices before the opening of the market each business day.
