1. Kuwaiti Dinar

Kuwaiti Dinar

One of the world's most consistently strong currencies, the Kuwaiti Dinar is widely sought after. With 1 Dinar equaling roughly $3.26 US dollars, the Kuwaiti currency is indeed very valuable. Kuwait is home to large oil reserves, a high-income economy, and a low unemployment rate, and its economy has weathered regional conflicts, including the Gulf War of 1990.

2. Bahraini Dinar

Bahraini Dinar

The Bahraini Dinar is very similar to its Kuwaiti counterpart, and indeed both nations form part of the Persian Gulf and are rich in oil reserves. One Bahraini Dinar will fetch around $2.65 US dollars, making it one of the Middle East's strongest currencies. An attractive place for foreign investment, the stability of the Dinar has seen interest from many global markets.

3. Omani Rial

Omani Rial

Oman's Rial is another Middle Eastern nation that attracts attention for its strong value. Another oil-rich nation, Oman has been an important trading center for centuries for both its geographic location and its sought-after mineral resources. Currently, 1 Rial will equal around $2.60 US dollars, and its close pegging to the American currency helps it offset fluctuations in value.

4. Jordanian Dinar

Jordanian Dinar

Although Jordan (or the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan) has seen violence and political instability, the nation's currency has remained relatively stable. With one of the strongest values in the Middle Eastern region, 1 Jordanian Dinar is currently roughly equal to $1.41 UD dollars. While not a natural resource-rich nation, Jordan is a popular tourist destination and has made several favorable trade agreements with Western countries.

5. British Pound Sterling

British Pound Sterling

The United Kingdom is one of the few nations of Europe not to use the EURO currency, and its Pound Sterling has indeed had to navigate a number of unstable economic and political times. Its most turbulent times were during the recent vote for Brexit and the prolonged period of uncertainty before the UK's final withdrawal as a member of the European Union. Despite this, the Pound Sterling has still managed to maintain a high trading value, and 1 Pound equals around $1.21 US dollars. In addition, the Pound Sterling is the fourth most traded currency worldwide.

6. Cayman Islands Dollar

Cayman Islands Dollar

Situated in the Caribbean Sea, the Cayman Islands have become known as a tax haven and have steadily grown into a major financial center. Nearly on par with the American currency, 1 Cayman Dollar equals roughly $1.20 US dollars and is easily used by many American and global tourists. Indeed with little taxes and its close peg to the American currency, the Cayman Islands and its circulation have been an attractive and lucrative place for investors for quite some time.

7. Euro

Euro

The official currency of 20 member states of the European Union (now including Croatia on January 1, 2023), the EURO was introduced on January 1, 2002. The second most traded currency in the world, after the American Dollar, the EURO finds itself nearly at parity with its US counterpart. Currently, 1 EURO equals around $1.07 US dollars and is one of the most stable, viable, and flexible markets globally. Indeed the experiment of the EURO Zone to replace the national currencies of many European nations has proven to be one of the best success stories of 21st-century economics.

8. Swiss Franc

Swiss Franc

Switzerland's Franc is one of Europe's most stable and viable currencies, which is currently nearly on par with the American dollar. As of the end of 2022, 1 Franc equals roughly $1.07 US dollars, and with Switzerland's historic neutrality and political stability, more positive growth is only expected for the Swiss economy. The seventh most traded global currency, economic policies from the Swiss National Bank have ensured Franc's high ranking and trading value.

9. US Dollar

US Dollar

The most used currency in the world and the one currency to which all others are compared, the American Dollar dominates finance and global trading. In circulation since 1792, incredibly, only 30% of US dollars in circulation are actually in use within the continental United States. Indeed many of the other currencies on this list are pegged to the US dollar, indicating its wide influence and global value.

10. Bahamian Dollar

Maria Sharapova

On parity with the US Dollar, the Bahamian Dollar first entered into circulation in 1966 and serves the small island nation of the Bahamas. Another destination considered a tax haven, the Bahamas is a major tourist destination and attracts much foreign investment due to its currency's high value. Despite several natural disasters, the Bahamian economy has remained stable, and its parity with the American dollar has helped it overcome periods of uncertainty.

11. Singapore Dollar

Singapore Dollar

The Singapore dollar (SGD) is the official currency of Singapore. It is used in both Singapore and Brunei.
1 US dollar will buy you around 1.36 Singaporean dollars. The Singapore dollar is an expensive currency that is the 13th most traded currency on the foreign exchange market, accounting for around 1.8% of daily forex trades.
