Quick Online Currency Converters
#1 O and A Currency Converter — This one is great because it shows the exchange rate both ways (For example: 1 USD = .67 Euro and 1 Euro = 1.47 USD). So you can see at a glance the exact dollar amount that you’d get in cash for the amount in question. And… you can even explore the values for past dates… all in one place!
#2 Yahoo Finance Currency Converter — I like the starter page better than the results page because you can see at a glance what the major currency cross rates are for the day (so you can see US, Euro, CAN, AU, Swiss, UK, Ven all at a glance… for the day).
#3 Travelocity Currency Converter — This one is awesome for travelers because, when you check “Currency Cheat Sheet”, you get a breakdown of all of the denominations for a particular country that you are traveling to, so you’ll always have handy that $1 USD = this amount, and $5 USD = another amount, $10 USA = another amount… and so on. (Actually it shows all amounts from $1 through $10,000!)
#4 Coin Mill Currency Converter — I like this one because it shows which countries use the money you’re inquiring about. For example, where is the Euro the primary currency? And where is the USD the primary currency used?
