Currency Information on Haitian Gourde - HTG — Haitian Gourde – G
The currently used gourde is the third incarnation of the currency, having been revalued twice since being introduced in 1813, first at a rate of ten to one, then at a rate of 300:1.
1 gourde is worth 100 centimes and coins are available in denominations of 5, 10, 20 and 50 centimes and 1 and 5 gourdes.
Banknotes are in circulation in denominations of 10, 25, 50, 100, 250 and 500 gourdes. 1, 2, 5 and 1,000 gourde notes exist, but they are rarely used and are no longer issued.
We are an international business and work with companies around the world, especially California in the US and Australia. Our providers are based in different countries so we need to be constantly up to date about the current foreign exchange rates. Otherwise, we would be wasting money during the currency transfer process and obviously this is not what a business wants.
