Owing to the image of a loon on the one-dollar coin, the Canadian dollar (CAD) is sometimes referred to as the “loonie”. Closely tied to the US economy, the CAD accounts for approximately 2% of all global reserves, superseded only by the US dollar (USD), the euro (EUR), the yen (JPY), and the Great Britain Pound (GBP). With its extreme sensitivity to movements in crude oil and other products, traders often use the CAD to speculate on trends related to these commodities.

The modern Peruvian currency, the sol, was adopted after the Peruvian government was forced to abandon Peru’s former currency (the inti) in 1991 due to the bad state of the economy and hyperinflation in the late 1980s. When travelling in Peru, it’s important to watch out for fake US and Peruvian sol banknotes, especially when receiving change from taxi drivers or exchanging money on the street. Pro tip: Carry small change and withdraw cash exclusively from ATMs to avoid getting scammed.
