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, welfare of the society and the country as a whole.

What is the most expensive currency in the world?

The most expensive currency in the world has always been with the state, which was primarily worried about its economy. Carrying out the right foreign and domestic policies, you can achieve considerable success, but even so, financial practice suggests that it is impossible to fully calculate all the risks, and because of this, the currency system often goes out of control. Monetary crises are continually falling on different countries, and since the economy of many of them closely intersects, it often feels the whole world. In fact, the currency economy has always been relevant not only to important, but also to the most unpredictable point of the economy. Because of this, some respected analysts and financiers talk about some mystical essence of money.

Commodity-money relations

One time on the planet there was no need for money, and the most expensive currency in the world was the product that you can exchange for the necessary for yourself. The need for money became relevant only when there were some problems associated with the complication of 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 a change from a kilogram of meat, exchanged for the same amount of vegetables, a person had to offer something in addition. Thus, when the barter exchange had exhausted itself, money was invented that established the price of the commodity, based on the effort spent on its extraction.

Modern money turnover

In the modern world, almost every person keeps money in their hands every day. Thanks to them, you can purchase any service or product. And as for the price of the banknotes of a particular country, they can only be compared with the currency of other countries. At the moment, around the world, you can count about 180 different types of money. Thus, a quite reasonable question arises as to which is the most expensive currency.

Financial experts consistently make different ratings, in particular, determine how much the money of other states has a large value relative to the Russian ruble. For the sake of justice it is worth noting that for several decades 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 once it is worth mentioning 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 with Bahrain. By the way, Kuwaiti dinar - the most expensive currency in the world - to the surprise of many made of plastic. And according to the UN, this country is considered the best place to live among the countries of the Arab world.

Kuwaiti Dinar

So, the most expensive currency to ruble is the Kuwaiti dinar. As of 02.04.2015 for one such unit it is necessary to give 190.45 Russian rubles. Needless to say, how the currency rose in price, if in 1961 its value was 2.79 rubles. In circulation, she fell in the same year, replacing an Indian rupee. The peak of growth of this note fell in 2007, which was marked by an outflow 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 2 others are very close. The first is an indelible Latvian armor, 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 EU. It is worth mentioning that officially this currency no longer exists, as in 2014 the country completely switched to the euro, but at the same time, the bill was not completely withdrawn from circulation, although no one actually can buy for it.

The most expensive currency in Europe and virtually the whole world is a bill of Great Britain. Why is the 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 the Arab countries. At this time, the pound is officially accepted in many countries of Europe. It costs more than the euro and the dollar due to the fact that at a time when Europe and America embraced the financial crisis, the UK was quite a promising place for investing capital. Thus, while the whole world was in a deplorable state, the economy and production of England became more confident every day. What to say, if at the moment, the economy of this country is on the 2nd place after Germany in Europe and 5 in the whole world, that's why the country has the most expensive exchange rate. Naturally, this was not achieved in one year.

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

The cheapest

Since the most expensive currency in the world is known, it would be right to inform and the top three "outsiders" - countries whose money occupies the last lines of the rating and are the cheapest in relation to the ruble.

The Turkmen manat (Turkmenistan) is on the third place from the end. The currency of this country is relatively young, since it was officially introduced into circulation only in 1993, when it replaced the ruble. The rate of this monetary unit is falling every day, and this is due to the fact that the country's natural resources are very quickly 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 currency development is the Zimbabwean dollar. In fact, the fall in the rate is so fast that it is very difficult to follow it. For example, recently for 1 US dollar offered an amount with 24 zeros. Thus, the government has to regularly hold a denomination, but soon after that the currency depreciates even more. Quite not surprising price tags, for example, a mineral water in the 25 billion. But any tourist who has a few cents in his pocket can actually feel like a millionaire, even for a short while.
