Currency in the modern era consists of bank notes and coins.  This has been true until the recent advent of digital currency, where in places like Niarobi, Kenya monetary transactions are made between individuals using currencies such as M-PESA via their mobile phones via services such as Safaricomm.

In the mid 1900s, numerous currencies in Europe were merged into the Euro including the German Mark (1990) and the French Franc (1998).  In ancient times, currencies were commodities such as gold. silver and even salt.

The most traded currencies today are the United States Dollar (USD) which is widely held as the global reserve currency and the Euro.
