I have just bought some Zimbabwe dollars in the hope that it too will revalue some day like the dinar. My question is how come if the ZWD is a defunct currency how come it's on the currency converters? Thanks guys!

 It possibly shows the last known trade before it went defunct?

My question would be - "who's" currency converter are you using?  If not a "paid" Forex, there are all kinds of "currency" converters that will carry a conversion for whatever they feel people are interested in knowing about.

If it is on the "site" you purchased from, or a blog site attached to where you purchased from - of course they are going to show you a figure.

Without paying for "current" rates on tradable currency - You can use Market Watch dot com.  Can be confusing, but if you use the Search on the right hand side - you can generally find it.

They have been off Market Watch since approximately Sept of 09, and have NO value.

This would be a "beware" and be cautious.....

Not FOREX - a site that sells information you might get on FOREX, and even that site won't show of picture of the 1997 issued ZWD.

If it is not on FOREX - which means it will be on MarketWatch - it doesn't mean a thing....

any site can have "live rates" - which they get from FOREX and the NYSE, Dow, Nasdaq, S&P, DOW, STSE CAC SAX Stoxx, Sensex, Hang Seng and on and on.

I just try to stay closest and fastest to accurate...

Thanks IQD4US!! I still don't understand how any site including Oanda can show a conversion of a currency that is in fact defunct, just confuses the cabbage out of me!
