How many countries there are so many currencies in the world Of course you can see that in some countries the same currency acts and is official for absolutely different peoples.
For example, the euro, which is accepted as the official currency in the entire European Union. But, if you pay attention to such a currency as the dollar, then it can be paid absolutely in all countries of the world, without thinking about what course is valid in this state.
The fact is that US dollars have a very strong influence on the world economy and are the main currency for settlements around the world.
But it’s worth paying attention to the Canadian dollar, which appeared much later than its American brother, but nevertheless managed to win its place in the global distribution of capital. The Canadian dollar has a very interesting history of origin, which goes far into the seventeenth century, when the world was ruled by completely different capitals than today.
The history of the Canadian dollar
Until the moment when Canada was able to become an independent state, there was trade on its territory through commodity exchange, as well as in different parts of the country, absolutely different currencies. It is worth mentioning separately that only thanks to the Spanish colonies, Canada was able to create its own single currency.
Indeed, it was for these parts of the country that Spanish dollars were brought from Spain, which were later converted to Canadian dollars and could become exactly what the country needed so much.
It is also worth noting that in addition to Spanish money in the then still scattered Canada, there were French, English and American banknotes. And the local population in the person of Indians calculated with each other either goods, or special belts with seashells and it was considered quite normal. But since 1841, Canada has a currency that is little like the modern Canadian dollar, but nevertheless is the forefather of today’s dollar. So we can assume that the Canadian dollar has its roots in Spain.
After the currency was recognized by all parts of this young state for another ten years other money went around the country and everyone could calculate what they wanted. But already in April 1871 the Law issued prohibiting the circulation of any other money, except the Canadian dollar, thereby strengthening the currency and making it a single whole.
Back in 1813, army bills began to be issued, which were later replaced with banknotes. But thanks to the successful growth of the country’s economy, its currency was able to get enough power to be considered real money and recognized throughout the world.
Therefore, it is worth noting the high degree of development of this monetary system, as well as the competent management of its turnover.
Many experts argue that it was thanks to the fact that the Canadian dollar began to become attached to the American one that it helped to survive it in the most difficult times. After World War I, there was a devaluation of money, which subsequently led to the collapse of many countries, and Canada at this time managed to maintain its position only because it had a close relationship with the United States of America.
A new story for a new country
You can tell endlessly that because of their own diligence and perseverance, Canadians have received such an excellent currency, which is appreciated all over the world.
If it were not for some historical events that stipulate that there is nothing permanent in the world, it is possible that it is the Canadian dollar that would be the number one currency in the world.
But while he is inferior to his American brother, which means he is not strong enough to replace him.
But those experts who consider the economy of the country as something alive are sure that there will inevitably come a time when the Canadian dollar will be able to prove itself to the full, and perhaps even will be at the top of all financial operations of the world. In the meantime, it is worth waiting and believing that everything will be all right, all the more so that there is nothing more permanent than the belief of a man in his country that has managed to educate in him not only patriotism, but also the best qualities for life.
