Share this ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ˜

Well, lads, I have often wondered what the strongest currencies in the world are. I mean, I didn’t give it much thought. Do you presume it is the Euro or USD? Or at least what we think is the strongest.

So today, we’re setting off on a journey, not over the rolling green hills of Ireland, but through the thrilling world of global finance(not so thrilling, let’s be honest), to uncover the strongest currencies in the world!

Back in the day, goods were traded for livestock or sacks of grain. Fast forward to today, and we’re dealing in paper, cryptocurrencies and digital figures. It’s a world where currencies are the quiet rulers, each with a story as rich as any ancient legend.

Criteria having the strongest currency in the world

Now, you might ask, what makes a currency strong? It’s not just about having a high value against the dollar, though that’s part of it. It’s also about stability – being as sturdy as an oak in a storm. A strong currency comes from a country with a robust economy, political stability, and high global confidence.

  • Now, yes, it is easy for me to compare the strongest currencies in the world to the USD, but for a fresh approach, I am going to compare them to the Euro. 

For the comparisons, I used Wise’s calculator. I use Wise now as my primary bank, and their exchange rates are always very accurate. So, while I tried to keep this as precise as I could for 2024, it may change depending on when or where you are looking in the future. Currently, this is based on data from 24th January 2024. And I did not include Bitcoin in this list, or it would be number 1! For the record, on this day, it is €36,656 to 1 Bitcoin.
