Currencies I Have Known

I was going through a bag of coins and small bills I’ve collected over the last several months. I thought it would be fun to compile a list of all the currencies I’ve had to deal with since my trip started. The conversion rates are all listed as the amount of the currency which can be purchased with US$1. The rates are also as of today, not when I was there. Exchange rates have gotten better in Australia and New Zealand, but have gotten worse in Japan.

Countries in italics are places I’ll be in the next few months. Cambodia is listed twice as the US Dollar is the common form of currency, but the Cambodia Riel is used in place of coins.

    Its kind of cool how you listed the currencies in general gepgrpahic order. Is that the order you visited the countries? I'm kind of new to your blog, so I am starting in part way though the adventure.

      it is the order I encountered the currency. I came across the Australian Dollar for example before I was actually in Australia.

      I also forgot to add that the Cook Islands uses the New Zealand Dollar.
