Currency Information on Nigerian Naira - NGN — Nigerian Naira - ₦
Introduced in 1973, the naira replaced the pound at a ratio of 1 pound: 2 naira. The naira has suffered from rapid inflation and discussions have been underway since 2008 surrounding revaluing the naira.
Coins in denominations of 50 kobo, and 1 and 2 naira are in circulation, alongside banknotes of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1000 naira.
"Until now I’ve paid high bank charges and been given poor exchange rates to transfer but USForex gives a much better option – minimal fees, and good rates of exchange. Plenty of flexibility and good customer service too."
