XAU Gold[edit]

"XAU Gold". Gold what? Pink Elephants? Fixing. --Admbws 00:01, 30 Mar 2004 (UTC)

ISO 4217:1981 says just "Gold". I see that someone has added to the article that the unit is troy ounces, but does anyone have a reliable reference for that? It could, for instance, be kilograms or grams---or unspecified by ISO 4217. --Ljosa 09:38, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

The article now says Codes for precious metals Gold (XAU), Silver (XAG), Palladium (XPD), and Platinum (XPT) are formed by prefixing the element's chemical symbol with the letter "X". These "currency units" are denominated as one troy ounce of the specified metal as opposed to "USD 1" or "EUR 1". Opposed how? I'd drop the last phrase – and change denominated to defined. —Tamfang (talk) 08:02, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

Equatorial Guinean peseta - code GQP?[edit]

The page Equatorial Guinean peseta claims without reference that there was an ISO 4217 code GQP for this currency. Can anyone confirm / negate this claim? —Coroboy (talk) 09:35, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

 Done 701989800] // Dear @Coroboy: The claim was indeed false. We are currently tracking many other false 4217 claims around... --Usien6 msghis 16:47, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

CNH included in active official currencies, why?[edit]

Why is CNH included in active 'official ISO' currency codes?

as per <http://www.xe.com/iso4217.php> at least, there is no mention of CNH being an official ISO currency, or here: <http://datahub.io/dataset/iso-4217-currency-codes/resource/69ec48a5-4195-4439-92cf-d15096b9b20a>, or here <http://www.currency-iso.org/en/home/tables/table-a1.html> in the documents, or here <http://data.okfn.org/data/core/currency-codes>, or here <http://data.okfn.org/data/core/country-codes>

As per <http://www.cmegroup.com/education/files/offshore-chinese-renminbi-market.pdf> it states on page 1 the document 'No official ISO code currently exists for CNH and it is simply referred to as “offshore RMB” or “offshore CNY” with the same ISO code, which can cause confusion distinguishing between onshore CNY and offshore CNY settlements and reporting. '

There was a discussion on Bitcoin earlier where someone brought up CNH - and yet it is still in the list. I understand that in the list of currencies in the table in question that the details for CNH are the same as for CNY and that as per the source above it says "with the same ISO code", but that does not mean it is an 'official' ISO currency as per what the table is meant to be about.

Does anyone have a source to show that CNH is indeed official and if so, can they provide it? As all signs point to it not being official and should therefore be removed — Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.21.67.155 (talk) 01:02, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

CNH is not an ISO 4217 currency. There is no justification for including it in that table. Misha Wolf (talk) 10:32, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
Then how about someone remove it? I'm not a registered user/editor so if someone with credentials would like to do it, go right ahead. Otherwise, I'll take it out. Thanks.
SNV doesn't have CNH, so it is out for lack of citations. --Marianian(talk) 00:10, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for that — Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.21.67.155 (talk) 00:24, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Added CNH into the unofficial currencies. It is certainly used in Hong Kong and trades with offshore stock exchanges do indeed happen in CNH. I've added a link to a helpful page explaining the offshore Yuan Renmimbi market. — Preceding unsigned comment added by EntropyJim (talkcontribs) 14:44, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

Passenger name on airplane ticket not sufficiently redacted[edit]

There are enough uncensored pixels on the edges of the censored name to make accurate estimates about the name of the passenger. The first letter is most likely an "S", second letter probably "O", third probably "B" or "D", fourth is "V" or "U", then "L", "H", and "E". Maybe "SOBULHE"? Need to be more careful with censorship. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.118.17.157 (talk) 22:39, 13 February 2016 (UTC)
