The most used currency in the world. The US Dollar or ‘Greenback’ or ‘Buck’ as you may hear it called is the most traded currency in the World.
It has been said that if you have dollars in your pocket you can get by in many continents of the world.
The US Dollar is famed for its monotone green colouring and pictures of US President’s, however in recent the years the US Federal Bank has started to introduce more colour as they strive to introduce more security features to make the notes more difficult to forge.
When purchasing this currency, don’t forget to ask for the ‘US’ Dollar specifically by name as the Dollar name is also widely used by other countries such as Barbados, Singapore, Zimbabwe, Hong Kong, Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
Like the euro, the US Dollar is easy to obtain and readily available on demand at all eurochange bureaux. It is also available in Travellers cheques and is easily loaded on to a prepaid US Dollar prepaid card.
