The world's most beautiful Currencies

Currency serves as a transmission from person to person as a medium of exchange, a link between products or services exchange for cash. These days, we reckon currency only minted or paper money.
There were some other items which were used as a currency for trade before cash. For instance, members of the Native American nations often used cocoa beans for currency in trading clothing and other tools. Similarly, some goods that basically were of European origin were traded in some countries of Africa for gold dust. Some other ancient civilization used salt for the trade of goods.
The price that are offered to the trade of goods in a country are known as exchange rates, and these exchange rates are not set or fixed by the central bank of the country, they are known as the floating currency rates. Fixed currency is absolutely contrary to the floating currency and it is also known as pegged currency which is not used quite commonly, most of the time it is associated with the US Dollar and the Euro.
