The currency of Niger is the West African CFA franc
The West African CFA franc is the currency of eight independent states in West Africa: Benin, Burkina Faso, Guinea-Bissau, Ivory Coast, Mali, Niger, Senegal and Togo. These states have a combined population of about 147.5 million people (as of 2009) and a GDP of US$143 billion (2009). The franc is used in all eight countries regardless of the local language. Its ISO 4217 code is XOF.
The CFA franc was introduced in 1945 when the French colonies of Africa were grouped together as the French West African colonies. It replaced the colonial franc at a rate of 1 CFA franc = 1 colonial franc. The colonial franc had been pegged to the French franc at 1 ₣ = 5.719272millimes since 1926 (1 millime = 0.001 ₣).
When the CFA franc was introduced it was pegged to the French franc at 1 CFA franc = 0.02 ₣ (or 1 ₣ = 50 CFA F). This peg lasted until 1960 when it was changed to 1 CFA F = 0.01256413 ₣ (or 1 ₣ = 79.598756 CFA F), which meant that one dollar was worth about two and a half times as much as one CFA Franc; in other words, $1 = FCfa₅₀₀ . The devaluation of 1994 brought it back down to $1 = FCfa₄⁹4 .
The name “franc” comes from the Latin word for frankincense, an aromatic resin used in ancient times as currency or as a weight standard; incidentally, 5 grams are approximately equal to one gramme de friction or “gold grain”.
