HISTORY OF US DOLLAR

It was in 1775, 240 years since the continental congress of United States authorized the issuance of continental currency. 16 years later, on April 2, 1792, the United States Congress created the country's standard unit of money - The United States dollar which colloquially became American dollar. It might interest you to know that the word "dollar"- which is so popular had already been in common usage since the early colonial period. The eight-real coin (Spanish dollar) - the silver coin with 38 mm diameter minted in Spanish empire in 1598 was used by the Spanish throughout New Spain.

Because of its popularity, it is cheaper to carry US Dollars even if the local currency of the country you're traveling to, is available. This is because currency rates, especially of products such as cash currency and traveller's cheques are priced based on a demand-supply relationship.
