In Malaysia, our currency is called MALAYSIA RINGGIT.( RM ). They are in RM1, RM2, RM5, RM10, RM50, RM100, and RM500. Previously, we had RM1000, but it was abolished. And the small change, we have coins in sen. We have 1sen, 5 sen, 10 sen, 20 sen, 50 sen. $1. But $1 and 1 sen has been abolished. What is the name of currency used in your country? Can you tell us?

Ours is the British pound (with 100 pence) which is worth almost two American dollars at the moment so it's the top currency just now. Good for us Brits to go abroad but not so great for people coming to visit us.

Hi curious, In Canada our currency is the Canadian Dollar. There are 100 cents in a dollar. Our coins are the penney which is worth 1 cent, nickel 5 cents, dime 10 cents, quarter 25 cents, half dollar 50 cents. We also have a $1.00 coin and a $2.00 coin. Our paper money comes in $5.00, $10.00, $20.00, $50.00 and $100.00 bills. There was a $1000.00 bill, but the government decided to stop producing them in late 2000. There are still some in circulation. Blessings.
