A currency, in the most specific sense is money in any form when in use or circulation as a medium of exchange, especially circulating banknotes and coins. A more general definition sees a currency as a system of money in common use, especially for people in a given country. Under this definition, U.S. dollars (US$), euros (€), Japanese yen (¥), and pounds sterling (£) exemplify currencies. Such various currencies are recognized as stores of value and are traded between countries in foreign-exchange markets, which determine the relative values of the different currencies at any given point in time. Currencies in this sense are defined by governments, and each type has limited boundaries of acceptance.
