Donate your leftover currency: Over £100,000 raised in 2020

Despite the economic slump caused by Covid-19, we have exchanged over £100,000 pounds for charities so far in 2020. That is an amazing amount, topping all previous years!

This means a lot for the charities we work with and they are super grateful for the generous donations made by so many people who chose to give away the value of their leftover travel money to raise funds for good causes. A big Thank You to everyone who donated!

Currency Facts – Strongest and Weakest Currencies

Currency Facts – Strongest and Weakest Currencies

The weakest currency in the world is the Venezuelan Bolívar. The value of the Venezuelan Bolívar is so weak that 50,000 units are worth less than one US dollar. This has consistently been the case, due to the hyperinflation in the South American country. The weakest currency of all times was the Zimbabwean dollar, for which 35 quadrillion units were equivalent to 1 US dollar. The Zimbabwean dollar was demonetized in 2015. 

35 quadrillion = 35,000,000,000,000,000

Will more countries join the Eurozone?

Will more countries join the Eurozone?

Eight countries are part of the European Union but are not part of the Euro area: Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechia, Denmark. Hungary, Poland, Romania and Sweden. Denmark has negotiated an opt-out from the Euro. The other countries have committed to joining the euro area as and when they meet the conditions for entry to the euro area.

One of the entry conditions for a country to join the euro area is to participate in the second version of the European Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM-II) for two years before joining the Euro. This requires the country to pass the ERM-II legislation. As a result, countries can decide not to approve ERM-II laws and thereby not meet the entry conditions for the euro area.

There is no deadline for the remaining EU countries to join the euro area. Some countries, such as Poland and the Czech Republic, have made it clear that they don’t plan to join anytime soon. Other countries, including Bulgaria, Croatia and Romania, are expected to join the Eurozone in the near future. We look at this in more detail in what follows.

When choosing a currency calculator, make sure that the purpose of your query fits the purpose of the calculator. If you want to know a mid-market exchange rate, don’t use a currency calculator on a travel money website or one on a money transfer website.

Ask yourself what you want to use the currency converter for. If you want to trade currency on the foreign exchange market, you’ll need to consider using a paid-for currency rates service with real-time information without delays.

In addition to the more recent series of Luxembourgish Franc banknotes which are still exchangeable for a monetary value, we have added the older Luxembourgish Franc banknotes to the site as well. These demonetized banknotes from the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg only have a collectible value, no monetary value. We are able to exchange them and our exchange rate covers the collectible value of these pre-euro Luxembourgish banknotes.
