Currency Heroes and Zeros of 2021

Top 3 currencies in the world

We know what you’re thinking, this is an obvious list. US dollar (USD), Pound Sterling (GBP), the Euro (EUR). But no. Those are some of the most powerful currencies in the world. USD and EUR are the two most-traded currencies, so they always rank highly. But they’re far from the most valuable right now.

#1 Kuwaiti dinar (KWD)

1 KWD = 3.31553 USD

#2 Bahraini Dinar (BHD)

1 BHD = 2.65957 USD

#3 Omani Rial (OMR)

1 OMR = 2.60078 USD

The 3 cheapest currencies in the world

Small disclaimer at this point — it’s pretty tough to put these struggling currencies into order as the global landscape is frequently changing. Generally speaking, these 3 are the lowest value currencies in the world, just not necessarily in this order.

#1 Venezuelan Sovereign Bolívar (VES)

1 USD = 4.37503 VES

#2 Iranian Rial (IRR)

1 USD = 42,025.3 IRR

#3 Vietnamese Dong (VND)

1 USD = 22,759.5 VND
