More Information abut the Top 10 Highest Currency in the world 2022
- Kuwaiti Dinar (KWD)
As of January 2022, Kuwaiti Dinar is the highest Currency in the world. Currently, its value is more than 3.31 USD. The currency code for Dinar is KWD. The reason why Kuwaiti Dinar is so strong is that Kuwait has a very strong and stable economy due to oil-rich land and industry. If you are fed up with your country’s tax system then you may consider moving to Kuwait because here you don’t have to any kind of tax. One KWD can buy you more than 245 Indian Nation Rupees. That’s why you can find a lot of Indians working in Kuwait.
Kuwait is a small country as far as its size is concerned. Still, it has more than 9% of the global oil reserves. All of these make Kuwait rank very high in the countries with the highest GDP per capita.
2. BAHRAINI DINAR
The second highest currency that we have in the world in 2022 is the Bahraini Dinar. One Bahraini Dinar is about ₦1,101.50 This currency replaced the Persian Gulf Rupee which was the official money that was used in Bahrain.
- Omani Rial (OMR)
According to findings, Omani Rial is the 3rd most expensive/ valuable currency in the world. Its value is nearly double the value of the British Pound and 2.60 times the value of the US Dollar. Since 1973, the currency is pegged to the US dollar. The purchasing power of Omani Rial is insanely high. So, the Omani government has to issue banknotes of half Omani Rial and one-fourth Omani Rial.
4. Jordanian Dinar is the currency of Jordan (JOD)
The Jordanian Dinar is the fourth most expensive currency on our list. In 1949, the Palestinian pound was replaced by this currency in the country. Despite the Jordanian Dinar’s high value, it is difficult to explain why the country is not economically developed. Aside from that, the country has a significant external debt. Many experts believe that the Jordanian Dinar’s high value is due to the government’s commitment to maintaining stable exchange rates.
The West Bank, a contentious territory on Israel’s, Jordan’s, and Syria’s borders, uses both the Israeli Shekel and the Jordanian Dinar. On the plus side, according to numerous reports, Jordan is designated as a “Emerging Market Economy.”
5. BRITISH POUND
The fifth highest currency that we have in the world in 2021 is the British pound. Do you recall that it was the British pound we formerly used in Nigeria before the Nigerian Naira was established? Now what does it cost or what is it worth? One British pound is about ₦ 522.62

In 1972, this currency was adopted to replace Jamaican Dollars. As a result, it becomes one of the world’s most powerful currencies. Have you ever wondered why KYD is so expensive? The reason is straightforward. The Cayman Islands are one of the world’s tax havens. A huge number of insurance companies, hedge funds, and the world’s top banks have licenses from them. One Cayman Islands Dollar is now worth 1.22 US dollars.
