Best Currencies in the World

The Top Ten
1 Indian Rupees

India is a country of youth, positive mindset, ready to take the next step of advancement, a skilled brain hub, and equally gifted with natural resources. The combination of above creates a hope and opportunity to grow and surpass the fast developing nations.
For India, It does not matter who has been and who will remain in the super power for eternal, it does not matters who will use their powers to threaten and destroy other nations. Indians where ever stay in the world will be contributing to the human community irrespective of the geographical location and carry forward the humanity to the next generation. This is enough to boost the morals for the nation to carry the strong economic policies.
The country's economy is already open and offers a wide opportunity to investors world wide, with the largest consumers in the world, with high skilled man powers in the world, with high storage of raw material source in the world, with huge technology and infrastructure support, the ...more

Indian economy is one of the most stable(and fastest growing) economies in the world, it is hardly affected by any recession when other economies suffer. Our GDP (PPP) is third largest in the world only after China and USA.
Indian currency notes are very meaningful, colorful, cheat proof, innovative, beautiful, thoughtful, collectible and have an incomparable texture. The coins are also very attractive and artsy with different creative prints.
Shopping in India is very cheap.
Example: (1 USD = 67 rupees) you may need 2-3 dollars for a cup of coffee in USA but in India you can have a coffee with only 5 rupees., you can also get a meal in 20 rupees.
Many multi-national companies manufacture their products in India to reduce the manufacturing costs.
We respect our currency more than it's value, we worship our money in the form of goddess "Laxmi".

I am not an Indian but I am proud that after much struggles India is almost leading. Most sub Indian continents are jealous of the success India has made. Pakistan and Bangladesh are small in size and they can easily overtake India but they are lame. Children take time to succeed, its always the parent that leads. Hence, India being the parent of Pakistan and Bangladesh are lacked in many ways.

The Indian currency will definitely make its way.

If all the black money of India come back in India from other country...Then the position of India will will change..Many of you knows that Britishers ruled India and they also taken Kohinoor Diamond.And also taken huge amount of money and gold...And And also I think all of you knows that in the tamples of India there are huge amount of gold is kept and also in Punjab the one state of India one temple is made up by using gold... And I will hope in future the currency of Developing country India will become the valueable and strongest country of world.

2 Great British Pound

The pound is the best currency. It is set at a great value compared to many other currencies. unlike many other countries in Europe, the UK takes much in their identity by having a unique and different coin. I personally love it's uniqueness. The pound is also easy to use if you're a foreigner, especially from countries that use the Euro or the Dollar as it's relatively the same in value. The British pound IS the best currency.

In value the sterling pound is only ranked 6th but of the ones valued higher it is much more widely excepted. It's only real completion is the US dollar and the euro. The euro well we all know the problems there have been during the economic crisis in recent times. Which leaves the US dollar from the country that potentialy has the most power behind its currency. The US dollar is what the world measures again so is the bench mark. Maybe just me though but In a personal view the notes feel and look like toy money monopoly money. As for this list frankly it's a popularity content rather the real ranking and the top will always be a numbers game let's be honest the Indian population is pretty big I'm surprised gbp is 2nd but possible to the wrong country

The British pound has held very strong in nearly every country in the world, the Indian currency is not worth a lot in most countries and India is not a very developed country, maybe because there are a lot of people voting for India because India is a big country compared to United Kingdom. Quick reminder I am not British.

Britain is just the worlds oldest democracy, and the comments about India, are inaccurate, when the worlds fossil fuels run out the economic boom of Brazil and India will fade, Rule Britannia! But its nice that India is still part of the commonwealth.

3 U.S. Dollar

Why the hell is India on top. The United States is the largest economic entity on the planet. Other countries have a lot of confidence in the US. Many countries hold their gold in the United States. People know that the US will be a superpower until the planet is destroyed which is why we will always have the strongest currency.

Lets face it, once this bad boy comes out America, Canada and Mexico will overtake the world. Thus bringing us closer to a 1 world power and we can finally have peace and spaceships to travel the universe. The sad thing is, I'm not joking.

This should be number 1 on the chart because it is powerful and you can but anything with it! That is why we are the richest country in the world by nominal GDP! In the United States we will never run out of it because they always create new money with it! So great!

If we don't hurry up and get Obama out the dollar is going to be the worst of all. It is falling in value like a brick in water. Was the best money in the world, sure do hope the other country's don't call in there loans are we have all had it.

4 Australian Dollars

It is very unique as it has different size notes and colors, and we don't use notes for all dollars unlike the Americans and we use plastic notes unlike paper which has a shorter life, so the Australia dollar is the best.

Australia Should be on top Not India. Who in the world made this list. We all know India does not have the best economy in the world. Australia has always been stable and have never gradually done things to jeopardize there economy in anyway shape or form. Last time I checked A third world country can never have a better economy then a first world country. That's a fact.

Functional, unlike most other currencies. The notes vary in colour and in size (smallest denomination = smallest note) so when you look in your own wallet, you know which note is which immediately.

Growing by the day, overtook America, and will stay above. Should be up the top, but no-one really knows about the world economy and they're just voting for their own country.

5 Kuwaiti Dinar

Kuwait is at the top in real. Its funny to see India in this list.

Kuwaiti dinar is the best currency in the world because it is the highest currency in the world and 1KD is equivelent to 3.5 US Dollars

Kuwait currency is the best currency... Payment is high and cost of living is less

Kweti dinar is the powerful valued currency in the whole world I believe!

6 Monopoly Money

I think this is awesome! I always use this currency to buy things and the shop keeper doesn't even care... How awesome is that?

I think everybody should be able to use monopoly money in real life because sooner or later money will finish and people will starve, so let's start now to use monopoly money as a world currency!

By doing this the whole world will be united because we will all have the same currency!

Credit cards should be replaced with monopoly credit card!
I'll do it someday and the whole world will know my name

The only currency around the globe that brings people together and let you have tons of joy with friends and family! Without a doubt the best.

Monopoly money has no value! And I think it is dumb to use monopoly money! X0XOXO

Only currency big enough in value to buy hotels & other blue chip properties in cold hard cash

7 Turkish Lira

The fast growing economy, do I have to say something else?

Because Turkish Lira and Turkey groving. Turkey is leader of Middile East and most of Europe.

Because Turkey part of Europe and bridges between Europe and Asia

8 Euro

The Euro is an amazing currency formed basically overnight and is now the third strongest currency in the world. In addition to that many countries use it and the countries that use it are the best countries in the world. There are many designs on the coins for each country (The United State's 50 state quarters are no match for these designs! )

This should be higher.
1) the Euro is worth more than the US dollar.
2) it's used in about 19 countries.
3) Instead of politicians, it has famous buildings/structures, making it pretty pretty. Also, American dollars all look the same, they have the same colour and you can't tell them apart..

A great currency which can be used throughout most European countries. This is way better than changing currency every time you enter a new country. Saying that the Euro did replace local currency that made that country unique and different.

Euros are the best currency in the world the notes are so simple and pretty and the coins are also pretty. The good fact is that each country in Europe which is in the European Union has its own Euro "esign" so its nice to collect different ones!

9 Canadian Dollars

It's to the point and useful.
Our currency beats out the States a lot of the time which is why we spend a lot of our money over there. In any case whenever you go to a foreign country the left-over currency, like the coins always make for a good souvenir.

The only thing I don't like about Canadian bills is that when new...they tend to stick together due to static attraction...being made from plastic. More than once a cashier has handed me back a twenty that was stuck to another...Canadians can be trusted at least. Love the loonie and toonie...easy to save money because it adds up quick.

Canada will one day be a superpower.Our currency will one day overtake all other currencies.

We have plastic money. It's kool

10 Iraq Dinars

Dinar in Saddam reign was decent...darn Freedom Eagle (USA) they overthrow him for oil

When they revalue it

The Contenders
11 Japanese Yen

I respect the choice of the wonderful yen and personally love Japan. It is the greatest currency and hopefully will be spread round the world

Yen<dollar because Japanese are very nationalistic, harder cost of living but there are no beggars here because they are very industrious

12 Hong Kong Dollars

Hong Kong is known all over the world, so let's vote cause lot of people went there for work and have the money... Went back to their countries and exchange their's with their own currency... It's a big help!

Besides its status as one of the leading international financial centers, this city, which is home to 7 million people, has one of the best living conditions in the world.

Hong Kong is an international financial center, and Hong Kong Dollars are exchanged in most of the financial center around the world.

Hong Kong Dollars of course. We pull more than our weight.

13 Singapore Dollar

After separation from Malaysia, Singapore has succeeded in many ways. Proud of the country. It never imposed race or religion like Pakistan or Middle East.
Harmonious country to live in.

Singapore 20 dollars note. One of the coolest note I have ever seen.

Don't get wet. Very cool design.

Best currency in southeast asia, better than ringgit, rupiah and baht

14 Malaysian Ringgit

Currency rate will be increase in future.

It should should happen

15 Pakistani Rupee

I am not a Paki or Indian and it will take time for Pakistan to rise due to many recent mishaps. The western have lost trust on pakis. This has been happening sinve the India Pakistan separation which was by force. Nobody succeeds by force. No country should pose religion. India has never posed religion and has diversity religion and people.

Pakistan has posed Islam and that was the reason of separation. Those countries that posed only 1 religion never succeeded.

Eg. Singapore and Malaysia separated but not due to religion. Singapore succeeded.

Pakistan is the country with great natural resources like pure water, fertile agro land, oil, gas and much more. Gawadar is a new upcoming massive port. Its human power is massive, soon pakistan will be the assian tiger and world s great economy...

Pakistan is the best country India has made Pakistan bad...India is an very lier and drownful country...Afghanis made pak day Pakistan will rise and beat lier nations...INSHALLAH...stand up for the champion

I m proud to be a Pakistani... because Pakistan is the next super power of world... and also currency is going on peak... we over take India in ghazwa e hind...

16 Russian Ruble

There was the time when Soviet ruble costed more than US dollar, but it is gone. Today ruble is no more than just paper, thank Gorbachev, Yeltsin and holy Putin.

It is not going to be long before Russia and the USA will be working together and be good friends it is a very strong military, very big, industereous, good brain, lotsw of oil that they could protect it too not like qatar, kwait, Bahrain, UAE that have to count on others to give them protection befor the protectionist fid some body else more atractive

I agree about Russian.

17 Norwegian Kroner

A country with no debt, small population and lots of oil and the majority of the people are educated and speak
English. Their is no waste or corruption in this beautiful well run government.

Norway has one of the most powerful economies and has one of the lowest corruption in the world. That makes their currency one of the best in the world.

Deserves to be higher up this list!

18 Nepali Rupees

Currency with best design and best print. Its stylish look of NRs 50,100,500,1000 makes it worlds top beautiful currency. In the currency you can find various animals of rare group (endangered Species...

Nepali currency are well and vast decorated, has incredible designs. very beautiful

Best currency ever seen

19 Swiss Franc

The Franc is the currency of Switzerland and Liechtenstein and it is also legal tender in the Italian exclave Campione d'Italia. The Swiss Franc is one of the most important reserve currency of the world!

20 Philippine Peso

Philippine Peso is future one of the best in Asia, because its booming and fast growing economy that dominate the economy of entire Asia and the whole world. According to 2012 International Monetary Fund statistics, and is also one of the emerging markets in the world. The country is more abundant on Agricultural products transforming mainly into Manufacturing and Servicing that create more incomes.

This only shows that we are starting to see some changes in our country. I hope we can achieve higher than this for the succeeding years. The only thing we need to do right now is to be part on the improvement of our economy enable for us to appreciate it. Mabuhay and Pilipinas!

As a Filipino staying in the philippines, Philippine peso is the only best currency to bring along anywhere in the philipines without worry.

Almost anywhere in the world you can find Filipinos. And all of them work hard to support their Philippine Peso.

21 Chinese Renminbi

China is booming up now, obviously. You can see an extremely overwhelmingly strong trend in its currency as well.I am pretty confident about what would this currency perform later on. Accordingly, Chinese RMB has appreciated against USD and EURO heaps during the past five years. On top of that, Chinese currency is significantly undervalued against what it should deserve, honestly speaking, and the market would adjust itself sooner or later, regardless of Chinese government's fierce control on the fixed exchange rate policy.

Chinese currency will likely be the most widely used in a few decades.

£1=10 yuan now I think it's time to invest in it, maybe only £50=500 yuan by this time next year you'll have 6,000 yuan and the Chinese yuan will be worth more I'd say the value would be £1=2-5 yuan. So you'd be doubling your money or even better.

Hong Kong dollar.
£1=12 dollars I'd say try and buy 5,000 worth of it and you'd probably double your money in 5 years!.

22 South African Rand

Rather take a long walk to a greater economy than sprint because a strong economy, that will stay strong forever, is not rashed but built one step at a time and that is what South Africa is doing. It currency might not be as the richest currency in the world for now but tomorrow it shall be.

Rand is one of the very under rated currency in the world. South Africa is one of the developing country with strong financial services infrastructure and is considered as an economic powerhouse of Africa.

The Rand has never re valued since the Apathaid They have have strong natural resources other than gold. I look for this to rebound to a very strong world recognized currency

Sorry to bum you guys out but our economy is going through hell.

23 United Arab Emirates Dirham

I Like only the currency of UAE because it's very pretty there are 8 notes but all notes are very pretty I like it very much...

UAE dirham qualities are finest and favourite.

I think it's the growing infrastructure that makes it the best E. G Dubai

It is a high. Take place in second position

24 New Zealand Dollar
25 Polish zloty

The polish currency is a very strong one, you need only 2,50 for a US dollar and it is a growing economy.
