A currency in the most specific sense is money in any form when in use or circulation as a medium of exchange, especially circulating banknotes and coins. A more general definition is that a currency is a system of money (monetary units) in common use, especially for people in a nation. Under this definition, U.S. dollars (US$), euros (€), Japanese yen (¥), and pounds sterling (£) are examples of currencies.
Well I would also use what I know to explain, here in Nigeria, our highest Currency is 1000 Naira, I didn't know or think that there could be a currency note that could pass 10000 of whichever currency it was, as that was where I pegged the highest, don't mind the village boy in me. Well I read and got educated so am going to be sharing my discovery with you guys about a country that has a single currency note up to the value of 100 million, yes 100 Trillion in one note.
That's massive o, wait o, if I lose it together in my Wallet... Noo no Noo I can't be imagining that.
