What affects exchange rates between the US dollar and the Guinean franc?

The Guinean franc is today a free-floating currency that is freely convertible on the global foreign exchange market. The exchange rate between the US dollar and the Guinean franc is therefore subject to the supply and demand for both currencies in the market.

Factors that can affect the exchange rate between the US dollar and the Guinean franc include political and economic developments in both the United States and Guinea, the trade balance between the two countries, political stability in the two countries and elsewhere in the world, and interest rates in both countries.

When interest rates in either the United States or Guinea rise, the exchange rate of the same country’s currency tends to follow. That happens because more foreign investors will find it attractive to buy that currency, place it in a local bank account, and earn interest on the deposit. Demand is thus created in the global marketplace for currency of the country with the higher interest rate, and the exchange rate rises as a result.

Best ways to send money to Guinea

How does the Guinean franc trade against the US dollar historically?

The Guinean franc was introduced in 1985 as the official currency of the Republic of Guinea, formerly known as French Guinea. It replaced the Guinean syli, which had been in use for about a decade before that.

Since 2008, the Guinean franc has gradually been losing value compared to the US dollar. At the height of the US Financial Crisis in 2008, you would need about 4,300 francs to buy 1 dollar. By the end of that year, the exchange rate between francs and dollars changed to about 5,000 francs per dollar. The exchange rate remained steadily at the 5,000-level until the end of 2010, when a new period of sharp decline began for the franc, dropping to about 7,700 francs per dollar by the beginning of 2011.

Between 2011 and 2016, the franc remained relatively stable against the US dollar, changing hands at about 7,000 francs per dollar. In 2016, a government-initiated devaluation of the franc occurred, slashing the value of the franc from 7,000 to about 9,000 francs per US dollar.

Since the most recent devaluation in 2016, the exchange rate between the US dollar and Guinean franc has remained steady at about 9000 francs per dollar.
