Currency Information on Suriname Dollar - SRD – Surinamese dollar – SR$
Suriname has used the Surinamese dollar since its introduction in 2004, when it replaced the Surinamese guilder at a ratio of 1 dollar to 1000 guilders.
The Surinamese dollar is referred to, in Suriname, as SRD or SR$, as they also use US dollars to price goods, and so the need to differentiate arises.
Coins are available in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 25, 100 and 250 cents, as well as banknotes being available in denominations of 1, 2 ½, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 dollars.
Given the current crisis in my country, I was forced to move abroad to find a better financial life. I’ve been living and working in a good UK job for two years now. Although my wife and children came with me I send money to my relatives in Greece very often. Every time I do so I make sure I'm getting a good currency exchange deal by checking online how to send money abroad at the best rates.
