It appears that the most popular currencies in Africa are not the ones with the most value. The biggest economies on the continent like Nigeria, South Africa and Kenya, are being beaten by countries one would not expect. 

A country’s currency tells a lot about its economy and living standards of the people. There is a huge misconception that the biggest and most popular nations often have the best currencies; this is false – especially when Africa is concerned.

How do you think the big countries in rank concerning their currency in Africa today? Most people believed countries like South Africa and Nigeria have the most valuable currencies in the African continent.

But actually, it is not. Many other currencies are more valuable, especially from countries, you would least expect. The South African Rand came 8th on the list, while the Nigerian Naira did not make it to the top 10.
