In this section you will find information on the main currencies traded in Africa. Although there are many other local currencies, most international money transfers made to Africa are in the listed currencies or in US Dollars.
The main non-US Dollar currencies typically sent to Africa are listed below, and you can click on each one for further information. For payments from the UK to other African countries, is is often best to send US Dollars and have the currency converted again locally if required.
