Check Out Top 7 Most Valuable Currencies In The World, The US Dollar Not In Top 5, See Photos



The US dollar would likely be cited as the most expensive currency if you asked an ordinary person with no experience in foreign exchange what it was. Although it is the world’s reserve currency, it ranks ninth when it comes to high-value legal tender.

The Seborgan Luigino (SPL), which is used by the Principality of Seborga, which is close to France, is actually the strongest currency in the world. Almost no one has ever heard of it. Their currencies are not accepted internationally, like with all tiny and obscure nations.

This leaves us with a few other choices that aren’t very common but are widely accepted outside.

Below are the currencies:

1. Kuwaiti dinar ( د.ك/KWD)


The most expensive currency at the moment is the Kuwaiti dinar. Despite having a population of less than 5 million people, the country has one of the highest levels of per capita gross national income in the world.

What accounts for the Kuwaiti dinar’s strength? Kuwait is one of a number of tiny emirate nations, along with Bahrain, Oman, and Jordan, that get the majority of their wealth from the production of oil, natural gas, and petroleum.

Currently, this nation supplies around 10% of the world’s total oil reserves. Additionally, some nations, such as Kuwait, establish a set exchange rate for a basket of different currencies. They keep their values generally high and don’t change much because of this.

Another feature of this valuable currency is the use of greater denominations, usually at least 1000 units (where most countries use 100).

2. Bahraini dinar (.د.ب/BHD)

The Bahraini dinar is the second most expensive currency in the world. It is similar to the Kuwaiti dinar in a lot of ways.

The country has fewer people than its Arab counterpart, and they all live on a small archipelago. But, like Kuwait, the country has a strong economy because it exports a lot of oil and petroleum products.

Since 1980, the Bahraini dinar has been tied to the dollar at a rate of $2.65 per dollar. Furthermore, the country keeps a large amount of dollars in reserve to help stabilise the currency and make it easier for people to invest overseas.

Since oil is mostly priced in US dollars, Bahrain and Kuwait both do a lot of business with the US.

3. Omani rial (ر.ع./OMR)

The rial in Oman is a replica of the currency in Kuwait and Bahrain. The nation is regarded as the first Muslim nation to gain independence. Oman, like the majority of its peers, has a high-income economy that depends heavily on oil and gas exports.

Since 1986, the USD to Omani rial exchange rate has been $2.6.


4. Jordanian dinar (د.ا/JOD)

The Jordanian dinar is different from the first three currencies in that it is included in this list. The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (often known as Jordan, or just Jordan) does not have the same oil reserves as its Arab neighbours. Since a lot of its residents live below the poverty line, this area is considered to be in the upper-middle income range.

However, the nation’s economy is well-diversified, with strong sectors like manufacturing, construction, mining, transportation, and finance. Jordan is close to the US since its currency is tied to the US dollar at roughly $1.40 for every JOD, just like Kuwait, Bahrain, and Omar.


5. British pound sterling (£/GBP)

Although many other countries use it, the British pound sterling, or quid, as it is informally called, is the official currency of the United Kingdom. Up until about the first half of the 20th century, GBP served as the world’s reserve currency, making it the oldest legal tender in history.

Although GBP is the fourth most traded currency behind the US dollar, the euro, and the Japanese yen, it is, pound-for-pound (pardon the pun), the most valuable currency in mainstream forex.


6. Euro (€/EUR)

The euro is like silver if we think of the US dollar as gold in this metaphor. The euro is the second-largest reserve currency. Because it is used in the financial markets, it has a reputation for being a stable currency.

Additionally, the EUR/USD market is the most significant and is responsible for a sizable portion of daily forex transactions. The euro is used in 19 out of the 27 regions that make up the EU.


7. Swiss franc (CHf/CHF)

Switzerland and Liechtenstein both use the Swiss franc as legal tender. For a number of reasons, it is one of the most precious currencies.

Due to Switzerland’s highly developed economy, high level of trade, and high standard of living, the country has long enjoyed the distinction of being a “safe haven.”

During recessions, investors frequently stockpile Swiss francs, making them valuable. So, it is the seventh most valuable currency and the most traded one on the foreign exchange market.


Curtain thoughts

The face value of a currency means nothing because each country is technically free to set the value of its money at any reasonable level. This quality is evident in currencies like the Omani rial and Bahraini dinar.

In the end, a country’s prosperity is not necessarily correlated with the price of its currency. The US dollar is the world’s reserve currency, despite having a lot of detractors, because it strikes the correct balance between having a relatively strong currency and a developed economy.
