The United States is the reserve currency of the world. Therefore, it is the currency to which all other currencies are prepared. This does not necessarily mean the dollar is the most powerful or expensive currency, as that title goes to the Dinar. This is the currency of Kuwait, and it is still the strongest currency in the world. It was introduced in 1960, and when it was first released, it was designed to be equivalent to one British pound. Still, if you take one US dollar and exchange it for a Dinar in Kuwait, you will only receive 0.30 Dinar. That makes the Dinar the most expensive currency in the world.
Most people also know that the British pound is a very expensive currency. Even so, it is only the fifth most expensive currency in the world. In addition to the Dinar in Kuwait, there are several other currencies that are more expensive. These include the currencies of Bahrain, Oman, and Jordan. All of these countries have access to oil, which has contributed to a very strong economy. This is one of the biggest reasons why these currencies are so expensive. Still, if you take a dollar from the United States and exchange it for a pound in Great Britain, you will probably receive 0.75 pounds. Keep in mind that the value of currencies can fluctuate over time.
Countries in Mainland Europe use the euro. The Euro and the dollar are often comparable. Even though the Euro has dropped in value recently, the euro is still worth slightly more than the dollar. In general, if you go to Europe and exchange a US dollar, you will usually receive 0.90 euros. There was one time when the Euro was worth almost as much as the British pound, but the economy and Mainland Europe has been struggling recently. Therefore, it is not nearly as valuable as it once was.
Keep in mind that these numbers can change quickly depending on how various global economies are doing. For example, many people are concerned that the Russian Ruble is dropping quickly. During the past few months, the Russian Ruble has plummeted in value due to a number of reasons, not the least of which is the war going on in Ukraine. When people suddenly take one currency and exchange it for another, this reduces the demand for that specific currency. As a result, it is not nearly as valuable, and it makes it more difficult for people holding that currency to exchange it for a different type of currency. In some cases, the country may try to prop up or devalue the currency, but this can have a negative impact on international relations because the country could be labeled a currency manipulator. This will make it even harder for them to engage in international trade.
