Consider adding “sheqel” as a type-in like other quizzes do, because that’s the only reason I almost missed it!

without a "yellow box", folks can just guess names of world currency.

It is indeed, but if you're up for the tougher yellow-box challenge, then here it is.

"Centavo" just means "cent" in Spanish. I don't think it deserves a separate entry.

I'd suggest replacing it for ₿ (the bitcoin sign).

We just want the names of the currencies, without presuming to claim what they might translate into in other languages. The suffix -avo means portion in Spanish, so in any case 'centavo' would not be a direct translation from the English word 'cent' anyway.

You are confusing meaning and etymology here. "Cent" in English means exactly the same than "Centavo" in Spanish, which is a 1/100th of any basic currency unit. Every bilingual dictionary will give them as direct translations, and a Spanish speaker will talk about "centavos" even when referring to a fraction of a dollar.

But be it as you will. Your test, your rules. :)

Yes it would. It is a direct translation.

No it wouldn't. What you're saying is the equivalent of claiming John and Ivan are the same names because they are "direct translations" of each other.

You could add a section for the old defunct currencies for the larger, more recognisable, European states that now use the Euro.

come to think of it... I think I've had every one of these currencies in my pocket before, in some form or another, at one point or another, except for the Brazilian real and the South African rand. Though the pesos and centavos I had I think may have used different symbols I'm not sure.

oh wait, also never any Chinese Yuan... though I have had a wallet full of Hong Kong dollars.

¢ is also the symbol for the Ghanaian Cedi. I tried so many variants of this, thinking it the answer.
