When I’m at home I never stop to think about the currency that I use in day-to-day life, but once I visit a new country that changes. Maybe it is part of the excitement of going on a trip, but I love to study the currency of the land I am about to visit. You should anyway, so you can be familiar with the denominations and colours and not be caught out with the wrong change.
The history of currency is an interesting story as well. Our friends at Travelex are experts in international payments and they have put together this infographic on the history of different currencies from the most popular travel destinations around the world.
