Money circulation without exaggeration can be called the circulatory artery of the economy of any state. Everything depends on the qualitative functioning of this system: economic activity, growth, and the well-being of society and the country as a whole.

What is the most expensive currency in the world?

The most expensive currency in the world was always with that state, which was primarily concerned about its economy. Conducting the right foreign and domestic policy, it is possible to achieve considerable success, but even so, financial practice suggests that it is impossible to fully calculate all the risks, and because of this, the monetary system often gets out of control. Money crises continually fall on different countries, and since the economy of many of them closely intersects, it is often the whole world that feels it. In fact, monetary economy has always been not only an important, but also the most unpredictable item of the economy. Because of this, some respected analysts and financiers talk about some mystical essence of money.

Commodity-money relations

At one time there was no need for money on the planet, and the most expensive currency in the world was the product that you can exchange for what you need. The need for money became relevant only when there were some problems associated with the complication of the exchange. For example, you can take a fisherman who wants to get new shoes for himself, can only offer fish, but the shoemaker wants meat for his work.

In order to get change from a kilogram of meat, exchanged for the same amount of vegetables, a person had to offer something in addition. Thus, when barter exchange was exhausted, money was invented, which set the price of the goods, based on the effort spent on its production.

Modern cash flow

In today's world, almost every person holds money in their hands every day. Thanks to them, you can purchase any service or product. As for the price of the banknotes of this or that country, they can be compared only with the currency of other countries. At the moment around the world you can count about 180 different types of money. Thus, there is a quite reasonable question about what is the most expensive currency.

Financial experts constantly make up various ratings, in particular, they determine how much money in other countries has a high value relative to the Russian ruble. In fairness it should be noted that for several decades now the leaders are practically the same countries.

The most expensive currency

The top lines of the rating belong to the oil-producing countries of the Middle East, which, by the way, plan to create a single currency - something like the euro in Europe. But right away it is worth making a reservation that the cost of such money is likely to be several times higher than any other currency, in one Kuwait officially every 15th resident is considered a millionaire. The situation is the same with Oman and Bahrain. By the way, the Kuwaiti dinar - the most expensive currency in the world - to the surprise of many, is made of plastic. And according to the UN, this country is considered the best for living among the countries of the Arab world.

Kuwaiti dinar

So, the most expensive currency against the ruble is the Kuwaiti dinar. As of 04/02/2015, for one such unit you need to give 190.45 Russian rubles. Needless to say, as the currency rose in price, if in 1961 its value was 2.79 p. In circulation, she came in the same year, replacing the Indian rupee. The peak of growth of this bill came in 2007, which was marked by a decoupling from the dollar. As you can see, things as a result went up sharply.

The most expensive currency in Europe

In fact, nominally, the euro can be considered the most important and valuable currency not only of the Old World, but in principle, of the whole world. At the moment, only 5 currencies of different countries are stronger than it, and, as we already know, 3 of them are in the Arab region, while the other 2 are very close. The first is an inconspicuous Latvian lat, which surprises with its stability. Despite the fact that the country's economy is relatively weak compared to its neighbors, the indicators of Latvia's financial performance are at the level of the entire European Union. It is worth saying that officially this currency no longer exists, since in 2014 the country completely switched to the euro, but at the same time, the bill was not fully withdrawn from circulation, although no one could actually make a purchase for it.

The most expensive currency of Europe and in fact of the whole world is the bill of the United Kingdom. Why is a pound the most expensive currency, if in fact it is not? This is due to the fact that the Kuwaiti dinar is a fairly limited currency and is in circulation only in Arab countries. At this time, the pound is officially accepted in many European countries. It is worth more than the euro and the dollar due to the fact that at a time when Europe and America were in a financial crisis, the UK was quite a promising place to invest. Thus, while the whole world was in a deplorable state, the economy and production of England every day became more and more confident. What can I say, if at the moment, the economy of this country is on the 2nd place after Germany in Europe and 5 all over the world, therefore the country has the most expensive exchange rate. Naturally, this was not achieved in one year.

The course is valid on 04/05/2015. Naturally, in connection with Western sanctions against Russia, these figures may change every second on a significant scale, but based on recent observations, the ruble has outlined a positive trend.

The cheapest

Since the most expensive currency in the world is known, it would be correct to report the top three “outsiders” - countries whose money occupies the last lines of the rating and is the cheapest against the ruble.

In third place from the end is the Turkmen manat (Turkmenistan). The currency of this country is relatively young, since it was officially put into circulation only in 1993, when it replaced the ruble. The rate of this currency unit falls every day, and this is due to the fact that the country's natural resources are rapidly coming to an end, and it is no longer able to maintain its currency.

The second line from the end is the Somali shilling. The economic crisis in the country modern sea pirates began back in 1962 when they switched to the currency. In fact, due to the fact that the population lives below the poverty line, it was forced to deal with robberies and attacks on vessels.

The leader in the negative dynamics of the currency is the Zimbabwean dollar. In fact, the fall in the rate is so fast that it is very difficult to keep track of it. For example, recently for 1 American dollar they offered a sum with 24 zeros. Thus, the government has to regularly carry out a denomination, but soon after that, the currency depreciates even more. Price tags, for example, for mineral water of 25 billion, are not surprised at all. But any tourist who has a few cents in his pocket may actually feel like a millionaire, even if only for a short time.
