Currency Information on Afghani - AFN- Afghanistan Afghani - ؋
AFN is the ISO for the new Afghani, which was introduced in 2003, after unregulated and unrestrained printing of bank notes populated Afghanistan to have a circulation of over 15 trillion Afghani.
It was during this time that Anwar Ul-Haq Ahadi, the Afghan central Bank governor, decreed that all prices would be displayed in Afghani and all item should be purchased using Afghani, where US Dollars and Pakistani Rupees had been accepted prior. Since the introduction of the new Afghani, exchange rates have remained steady in growth and administrative measures, introduced with the aim of encouraging the use of the new Afghani have assisted with this.
This has also meant that the population of Afghanistan have more willingly begun to use their own currency as a means of buying and selling goods.
A friend of mine pointed me in the direction of this website when I was buying a classic car from overseas, naturally I wanted to get the best exchange rate possible in order to help cover shipping and import taxes. After a quick browse of the website it became clear an FX broker was my best option so I used the comparison table to compare my shortlist of candidates and requested some quotes. I was contacted nearly straight away and after playing two of the brokers off for a little while I secured a great rate. I literally saved thousands as I was initially going to use my bank just for the 'security' factor like i'm sure a lot of others do but after a quick comparison I realised all the brokers are authorised by the FCA just like the banks so my money was going to be safe regardless. The money I saved on the transfer paid for the shipping and import taxes which was massive boost and I couldn't be happier with the service. I would recommend this website to anyone looking at buying property, emigrating or making payments overseas as you can save some serious money! All the Best,
