Economical Influences on the Honk Kong Dollar Exchange Rate
Hong Kong is a major global financial centre, so it’s unsurprising that the HKD is one of the most-traded currencies in the world.
Hong Kong was a British colony from 1842 right up to when it became a part of China in 1997, but the country has always had its own currency. In 1972, the Hong Kong dollar was pegged to the US dollar - and still is today – at a rate of around 7.80 HKD to 1 USD.
The government issues Hong Kong’s coins, however bank notes come from three banks: HSBC, Standard Chartered Bank and the Bank of China.
