Despite the growth of cashless payment systems and worldwide acceptance of major currencies, such as the U.S. dollar and the euro, the currencies of smaller nations remain a strong symbol and signal of statehood. As new nations emerge, some choose to issue their own national currencies. The world’s youngest country, the Republic of South Sudan, created the South Sudanese pound in 2011, the same year it became a nation.
