  1. I got 4 out of 16 right and I was guessing the entire time because I only knew one literal answer. I don’t even know much about currency. I just thought it was just dollars, pesos, euros. And I learned about pounds from watching Doctor Who. Ha ha! Holy cow, so many different ones! I had no idea! I was excited learning that in your quiz, but I couldn’t answer the questions. They were too advanced for me, but I enjoyed taking the quiz anyways. This is a type of quiz aimed at people that have a general prior knowledge about currency around the world, and it’s cool.

    • It was a hard quiz, whatever your prior knowledge 🙂 I suppose that Americans, growing up in such a huge country, have less need to know about foreign currencies (and the rest of the world in general, perhaps). But I remember before the euro came in 2003(?) that you’d have to exchange currencies every few hundred miles as you crossed Europe 😮
