Contrary to popular belief, the U.S. dollar, British pound and euro are not the most expensive currencies on the planet. Moreover, it is by no means always the richest countries in the world that possess the most stable monetary unit. Nevertheless, we should note that the U.S. dollar is the most traded, strongest and most popular currency in the world.

The Kuwaiti Dinar (KWD) is the world's most expensive currency in 2024. The reason for this is Kuwait's economic stability and 8% of the world's oil reserves. The monetary unit is widely used in the Middle East for oil transactions.

The most convertible currency in the world in 2024 is the U.S. dollar. More than 70% of the banknotes are in circulation outside of the nation.

Note. The United States is still considered the most powerful country on the planet, which undoubtedly affects the sustainability and spread across the globe of the local dollar, which is the main reserve currency in the world. According to experts, this given will continue in the global market for at least decades to come.

The most stable currency in the world in 2024 is the Swiss franc. Strict monetary policy in Switzerland greatly helps to increase the value of the local currency.

There are many factors that affect the value of the currency. Governments in different countries based on local realities need to focus on several economic areas:

  • Stimulate economic growth.

  • Control inflation (about 2% a year).

  • Improve the trade balance.

  • Raise interest rates.

Some countries benefit from having a more expensive currency, while others do not. A weak currency partly helps the export industry by selling cheaper goods.
