The lowdown on the Hong Kong dollar
Hong Kong is a major global financial centre, so you won’t be surprised to hear that the Hong Kong dollar is one of the most traded currencies on the planet.
Hong Kong was a British colony from 1842 right up to when it became a part of China in 1997, but it’s always had its own currency. In 1972, the HKD was pegged to the US dollar, and it still is today – at a rate of about 7.80 HKD to 1 USD.
The government issues Hong Kong’s coins, but bank notes come from three banks: HSBC, Standard Chartered Bank and the Bank of China.
If you’re travelling to Macau from Hong Kong, you can use the HKD there too.
