World Currencies

A currency is a kind of money and medium of exchange. It includes metal coins and paper or polymer banknotes. Each country generally has a monopoly on the issuing of its own currency, although some countries use the same currency. Most members of the European Union, for example, use the Euro as their basic currency.

What function do coins play in the us economy?

Coin money in every society allows consumers (buyers) to spend a fraction of a dollar (or whatever the base currency is in each country). This allows for a wide range of pricing of goods. As an example in the US, without a breakdown of the dollar, every item would have a base price of $1.00 (or multiples of 1).

What is the national currency of South Africa?

The South African Rand, coded ZAR on currency markets.

Equivalent (Jan 2008) to about USD 14c, EUR 10c and GBP 7p

Named after the Witwatersrand (White Waters Ridge) which runs through Johannesburg, where the worlds largest deposits of gold lie. The gold contributes a lot to the wealth of South Africa so the currency is appropriately named.

The Rand was created in 1961, when South Africa became a Republic, fully independent from Great Britain. Previously South Africa used the Pound, Shillings and Pence currency as in the UK.

Currency is administered by the South African Reserve Bank.

Rand means 'ridge' and Dollar comes from 'thaler' (German) meaning "valley" or "dale".

How does currency depreciation affect companies?

currency depreciation is a double-edged sword for corporations, on the one hand it makes all your imports MORE expensive since your currency can buy LESS goods with the same amount of money, on the other, it makes your goods LESS expensive to consumers all around the world because their currency can buy MORE of your products with the same amount of their money, so if a company is a major exporter it will be positively affected, if it is a major importer, it will be affected negatively. if it is in the space between the two (which is usually the case) the results will vary depending on the elasticity of the product, the profit margin .... (between + and - )
