There are many curriences in the world, but only a handful carry weight either globally or locally.

Let's take a look at currencies that have the highest value in the world.

The highest-valued currency unit is the currency in which a single unit buys the highest number of any given other currency or the largest amount of a given good.

Most commonly the calculation is made against a major reserve currency such as the euro, the pound sterling or the United States dollar.
