What's the name of your monetary unit? What can you buy with one unit?

Chinese Yuan, American Dollar, Japanese Yen, European Euro, British Pound... What's the name of your monetary unit? What can you buy with one unit? In China, you can buy one bottle of mineral water with 1 Yuan; if you have 1 yuan, you can take a bus [big city 2 yuan or more].

Guess what? Rupee, translated into Chinese is 卢比, kinda like Russian rouble 卢布. Giggling~ 

Thanks for your kindness, Night! ;-)

You are most welcome, shabeen!

Oh, your monetary unit is the same with Pakistani.

Thanks for your imformation! ;-)

oh~ I see. But can you tell me the difference? I am so curious...;-)

Hi Mickey..

If you go back in history, a long time ago, India and pakistan was same nation. in 1947 (after independence from British) a nation divided in 2 parts called India n Pakistan.

Value at that time means at time of independence are almost same.. but now days, due to inflation, it is having different values.

As far i know, China had also 2 kind of currency. one for trade and one for location circulation within nation. am i rite??????

Azam, I heard that period of history.

[blushing] I didnt know that China had 2 kind of currency.

Thanks for your complement, Azam!

The difference is 100rs in India=167.25 in pak

and this is our Rupee symbol

Oooooooh, I see now! Thanks venu!

I like the colors of the symbol, but also I am curious about its detailed meaning.

Australian dollar ($) (Note there is one vertical line through the S, not two, which distinguishes it from the US dollar).

You can't buy much with a dollar. A local newspaper on Tuesday, today, costs $1.10.

Here's an image of the obverse side of a dollar coin:

Robinoz, thanks a ton for your comment! Especially the reminder!

Australian coin is cute! I wonder why there is a huger roo than all the others... Koala is lovely too, why not...?

The symbol for a dollar in the U.S. is $ also.  You probably use a double bar there to distinguish it from the Australian dollar but it isn't used in the U.S.

U.S. dollar? I've seen some before. But I know little about it. Just know 1 $ = 6.1¥.

hmmm..the my monetary of unit is RIAL and we can buy anything with it :P and we cant even see 1 Rial in the bazaar :)"
