What is the Suriname Dollar (SRD)?

The Suriname dollar is the currency for Suriname.

The currency code for the Suriname dollar is SRD. The currency symbol used is $.

The Suriname dollar was first seen in 2004 replacing the Suriname guilder. Old coins denominated in cents used for the Suriname guilder continued to be used for Suriname dollar. This meant that a 25 cent coin that was worth ¼ guilders would also be worth ¼ dollars, but ¼ dollar would now be equivalent to 250 guilders meaning that the coins value had increased significantly overnight.
