Currency is a fairly modern concept. As opposed to today's bank notes and plastic money, people in the older times used the barter system where goods were exchanged as a form of transaction. With the advent of the paper money and coins, products are now bought and sold with this new medium.

The currency of the United States is the most well known and is continuously in the limelight. It is rated highly in terms of its exchange rate and values. However, there are other currencies around the world that are equally valuable (if not more) like the US currency.

The United States stands at the top of the list and has a trading value of 84.9 per cent. There are dozens of countries around the world that use the dollar as their main currency. Other than the dollar, the Franc and the Pound are also used by many countries as their currency.

The European Union follows its own set of currency. All the members of the union have abandoned their respective currencies in favor of the Euro, which is now the single form of currency of the entire European Union. However, the United Kingdom, which is a part of the European Union, still uses its currency which is the Pound.

Some other countries who currencies are rated highly around the world, include Japan, Australia, Switzerland, Canada, Sweden, New Zealand, and South Korea.

The above map shows some of the most valuable currencies of the world.
