Amercian & Caribbean Currencies
In this section you will find information on the main currencies traded in the American continents. Although there are many other local currencies, most international money transfers made to north America are in US Dollars or Canadian Dollars, and most transfers to south America and the Caribbean, if they are for buying goods or property, tend to be made in US Dollars too.
The main non-US Dollar currencies typically sent to south America and the Caribbean are the Barbadian Dollar, Jamaican Dollar, EC Dollar and Mexican Peso. For payments from the UK to other south American countries, is is often best to send US Dollars and have the currency converted again locally if required.
Please click below to find out more about the main currencies sent to these countries. If you are looking for information on the US Dollar, please click for our dedicated US Dollar information page instead.
