    Default Any idea where to change Argentina Peso currency?

    Guys any idea where to change Argentina Peso currency?

    I went for a trip to KL a few mths back and met this man in his 40s.
    He got a few thousands of Argentina pesos and the cash converter over there won't accept due to the argentina banks' debts which is true.
    Feeling sorry for this man I gave him fifty SGD dollars and a couple of RM
    and he gave me 500 Argentina Pesos.
    I had it to look for counterfeit at local cash converter and it is genuine alright.
    But I found out that asian market doesn't accept Argentina Pesos.
    And the problem is where can i change it?
    Any ideas?

    I don't think u can find any money changer accept Pesos.

    May be u can ask the bank.

    The worth case, u might keep it as souvenir.

    there is still kindness in humanity.

    but as this story shows.. sometimes.. it doesn't pay..

    What's the exchange rate of Pesos?

    I think bank may get a better chance.

    500 Argentina pesos is equivalent to SGD280!!!

    I suggest you go to the airport to try your luck or ask any check-in passenger in the airport going to argentina to try your luck too.

    You can exchange back to USD/Euros if they dun have SGD.

    good luck

    Better to exchange it into USD.

    Hmmmm that would be a great idea.
    But I would foresee that the people will buy at a ridiculous price.
    Heheh. Anyway good idea also to keep it as souvernier.
    Maybe one day Argentina banks will rise up again.
    Just hoping...haha
