What is currency

Currency refers to the official monetary unit of a nation. Some countries may utilize a single currency with their neighbors, while others may have their own distinct currency.

For example, South Africa uses the South African Rand R (ZAR) as its national currency, but the United States uses the United States Dollar $ (USD).It is significant to remember that there is no hard and fast rule stating that a currency can only be used in one country.

What is the exchange rate?

The exchange rate represents the cost of a currency. When discussing exchange rates, we examine how much a foreign currency is worth in terms of South African Rand.

If a foreign currency is deemed expensive, it implies that the pound is weak. This scenario makes it more costly for Britons to purchase foreign goods or travel to countries with that currency. The strength or weakness of currencies in different nations affects the affordability of international shopping or travel. In everyday conversations, people might discuss whether a currency is strong or not.
