Facts about the US Dollar

The US dollar (often represented by the dollar sign $) is the official currency of the United States of America and is the world's largest traded currency.

The US Dollar was created by the American Constitution and defined by the Coinage Act of 1792. Also known as "buck" in informal term, it is a familiar word dating back to the 18th Century for dollars of various nations, including the U.S. dollar. "buck" is believed to have originated from the colonial fur trade. "Greenback" is another nickname for the US dollar which related specifically to the 19th century Demand Note dollars created by Abraham Lincoln to finance the costs of the Civil War.

Did you know that the early currency of the USA did not exhibit faces of presidents, unlike now? The main reason for this was that George Washington believed that by having his face on the currency, the currency would resemble the European banknotes where monarchs heads were displayed on their local banknotes. US Dollar bank notes continue to be made from cotton fibre paper and U.S dollar coins are produced by the United States Mint.

After World War II and under the Bretton Woods system, the value of the US dollar was thus anchored to the value of gold and fixed to $35 per ounce. Simultaneously, many global economies decided to peg their exchange rates against the US Dollar.

Why do so many economies peg their currency against the US Dollar

Each county has their own rationale in pegging their currency in US dollars. For example, many of the Caribbean islands do so because much of their income is derived in US dollars from tourism. Fixing their exchange rates to the US Dollar makes their currency less volatile and simultaneously stabilises their economy. Both in Africa and the Middle East, many countries have pegged against the US Dollar. Especially the oil rich nations need the US Economy as a major trading partner for oil, hence the reason for pegging against the US dollar.

In 1971, gold convertibility was finally terminated by President Nixon and became a freely floating currency under the careful watch of the Federal Reserve.
