How Much Is Dollar To Naira Exchange Rate Today Black Market { Updated Daily }

The Naira to Dollar exchange rate though pegged at an official rate of N305.5 per $1 had been at what could be described as freefall in the black market.

Though in recent days it has been fluctuating, currently at a rate of

  • N361 – buy per $ 1

  • N366 – sell per $ 1

This rate isn’t encouraging, in fact, many Nigerians now spend more buying less, an act that shouldn’t be. I would be highlighting reasons why it is so. To check this page for any changes in the dollar rate, save or bookmark the link below

We make use of different currency notes now or later. From the dollars to the Euro, Naira, and others. We make use of them to purchase goods ranging from food items and others, paying bills and do other things.

Do you know that there are actually some facts about the dollars you do not know? surprised right, well this article is about to show you a lot you do not know about the dollar. But before we go through with that, let us break down a little history about the dollars.

On April 2, 1792, the United States Congress created the U.S dollars as the standard unit of money for the country. The word dollar is derived from low Saxton cognate of the High German Thaler. Before the use of the paper money, coins were first in use, the most commonly circulated and readily available currency used by common Americans at that time was the Spanish Peso which was also known as the Spanish milled dollars and this was of much value for its high silver content.

In those days gold and silver traded at a ratio that hardly varied over centuries. It was known as a “Bimetallic” System. In time, gold became the central monetary basis rather than silver. Britain used the monometallic system in 1816, the United States wholly adopted this system until 1900.

The first U.S paper dollar was issued in 1875. The sign on the U.S paper dollar ($) has lots of theories. However, there is one which is widely accepted all over, this was according to the Bureau of engraving and printing that the dollars sign goes back to the Spanish Peso. Now below are some interesting facts about the Dollars.

  1. Martha Washington America’s first lady once graced the $1 silver certificate. Nowadays the bill could be worth a good chunk of change even more than $1,000 depending on its quality. This was in 1886, 1891, 1896.
  2. Do you know that the largest bill ever printed was $100,000 bill? It was actually a Gold certificate issued in 1934. These notes were used for transactions between Federal Reserve banks and they were not circulated among the general public.
  3. Do you know that the U.s currency is not made of paper, it consists of a 75% cotton, 25% linen blend with silk fibers running through it. This is what makes it durable and lasts longer for use ( Still on How Much Is Dollar To Naira Exchange Rate Today Black Market ).
  4. 90% of paper money in U.s cities holds traces of cocaine in it. Shocking right, not only cocaine, 94% of 68 dollar bills that were tested had bacteria on them. The bacteria on them could cause an infection like Pneumonia and other infections.
  5. Check the top right corner of a dollar bill, use a magnifying glass just to the left of the top of the “I” there is what appears to be either a tiny spider or owl in the webbing pattern.
  6. Hope you know that incomplete or a torn dollar bill is not worthless, you can tape 2 halves of a dollar bill together and the bank will replace it.
  7. You can trace where the dollar bill in your hand has been by using a site called where’s George, just enter the serial number of your bill and the site tracks it. The site has had over 270 million bills entered.
  8. Do you know that a one dollar bill falls out of circulation on average after 5.8 years according to the Federal Reserve Bank? That’s compared to the $10 bills low 4.5 years lifespan and a high of 1.5 years for the $100 bill.
  9. Take your $1 bill, look at the eagle on the back. The arrows in the eagle’s left talon represent peace.
  10. Hope you know that the two words are written above the pyramid logo “Annuit Coeptis” means “Providence Has Favoured Our Undertakings”. “Novus Ordo Seclorum” means “A New Order of the Ages” which refers to our historic form of government. This is below the pyramid.

Some Major Reasons For High Dollar To Naira Exchange Rate Today Black Market


Nigeria as a country imports more than it export, which shouldn’t be so. The ridiculous part of the whole scenario is we bring in things like pampers and toothpick making us more of a consumer country rather a producing one. You may think there is nothing wrong with this but a closer look at our economy would show you that we are strengthening the dollars against the Naira since most international transactions are in dollars. We need to become a producing country so we could have more to export aside oil.


In Nigeria, make a quality product and label it ‘made in Nigeria,’ and you would see a low level of patronage. In the other way round, make an inferior product and label it made in US, Italy, Japan or even China and you would see how it would be rushed. This obsession with foreign goods had made our importers import more exchanging our Naira for the dollars which have decreased the value of Naira.

This obsession had even gone to another level that we now prefer services rendered by persons from foreign countries who would demand to pay in their currency rather than our own. Nigerians fly out to study outside the country and go for other services like medication, conferences, seminars, etc. It would be better if we can strike a balance in this. There is a recent campaign in Nigeria which is the ‘buy 9ja to grow the Naira,’ many people had not yet accepted it.


public officers who are supposed to be custodians of our collective wealth had turned around to become the ones looting it. When they loot, they change this money into the dollar and stock them in foreign accounts, this had been the major source of Naira devaluation.


It is no news that Nigeria demands largely on oil exports for its revenue and it is also no news that this oil has lost value in the world market in recent years due to various reasons. This had led to a reduction in our revenue which had also affected the Naira. If only we can diversify to grow the Naira.


The policies have been made by the Government had been a reason to. Just recently, there had been an outcry from some quarters that the Government had technical devalued the Naira, an allegation that the Government denied. Either way, many foreign investors had lost trust in the economy and had refused to invest. This among other reason had been the reason Naira is depreciating against the dollar.

In conclusion to How Much Dollar To Naira Exchange Rate Today Black Market , I would like both the citizens and the Government to give a helping hand to the Naira before it becomes an object of ridicule like the Zimbabwe currency.

    1. u bi kkkk, ur country they fall u they happy..

      1. You think he is bad. Not so. The politicians are using the money of Nigerians to push the rate down so that they will be able to pay for their vacation, medical treatment, children’s school fees at a cheaper rate while destroying the schools and hospitals at home. Let them use the money that central bank is throwing into the financial market weekly to build schools and let the Naira find its true value. Even if it is 1000 naira to one dollar, things will rebase themselves and better for all. It is the bigmen that are spoiling the Naira abd yet end up getting a discount thorough the central bank’s intervention to pay for their high tasting goods and services abroad.

  9. True talk but who is going to put some sense in the government because, obviously it shows that they can’t read or think right because they think with there ass not the brain. i think the best way is to take them to a surgical room and fix this things to there brain..

  17. I want daily update of the black market rate of Euros.

    1. The rate in the post are updated in response to to increase or deduction in market rate.

  18. Is it decreasing?

  19. Question:How much will I get if I exchange 200 USD to Naira through Black market? Is it 407 Naira per 1 USD?

    Also if I do it through Black Market and exchange to Naira, I could go back to the bank and exchange it back to USD for more money, is that true?

    I don’t know if my question makes sense, but I’m kinda confused with how it worKS, you answer is appreciated:)

    1. The current exchange rate at of today at the parallel market is 460. So if you have $200 multiply by 460 will give you 92,000naira. Regarding your question about recycling the naira back to dollar by going to change it in the bank. No bank in Nigeria will give you dollar. Its left for you to use your head and find your own little secrete. Enjoy……..!!!

    2. Banks doesn’t sell dollars nor back up payment in dollars by Naira anymore, but they will buy dollars from you at Central Bank Rates,

      in the past when the Central bank was backing up dollar payment from Naira account, the Banks were charging their customers the Black MARKET RATES and not the Central bank rate,

  20. Send me emails on dollar rate for black market

  21. I hope one our writers will be more objective than this. Toothpicks and toothpastes are not our problem. The major problem is the importation of refined crude. This forces the dollar up and the naira down on demand and supply. Natural scarcity and artificial scarcity for dollar.
    Poor economic policies on cheap political gains. There are close local made substitutes for commodities imported to this country but the economic policies are not favourable to them strive in the economy. Why? The differal margin is slim and there by encourage more imports as a result the call for Usd increases and value ups.
    The market force in NGR is fuelled on the cost on transportation.
    These two exchange rate and cost of transportation. Implementing a policy to fix the cause for importing refined crude will ease the economy both internationally and locally.
    When this problem is fixed the inflation will rate drop and stable.

  34. Oh well, I feel so glad to come across this website, I love the fact it’s been updated every day! Thanks for the good job admin. Meanwhile i have a suggestion to what you wrote in this article on here… since Nigeria is yet to come together and produce numerous goods which they can be exporting to those foreign countries especially the America herself, maybe we should encourage our yahoo boys to keep chatting those white people and get them to sending plenty foreign currency into our country. I think that will also devalue the $$ somehow. It’s just a suggestion since a most young guys don’t even have the minimum capital to start up an exportation business, I think there stories and conversations with the foreigners should fetch them income since that’s the service they can render to the foreigners now. Never mind me, just being silly. Lol

  42. Answer Onyekachi Azuoma

    This site is lovely

  43. This is a good practise, thanks. I Miss the days of 1 Naira = 1 Dollar.

  44. This is simple theory when a nation can’t produce for exportation,how can it earn foreign currency? It is basically impossible. This is the bottomline, the nation wants to earn foreign currency but the infrastructure has kept her from performing the necessary functions that will lead her in earning foreign currency. The government structure will help in this aspect by putting all necessary infrastructure in place. like the power sector and to look for alternative energy that will help the country’s power to be boosted. The country’s economy has to be diversified, oil dependency needs to be stopped, focusing on other areas where the country can create avenue to boosts its economy, like mining, agriculture, manfacutring,etc. In consideration, have we looked into our attitudes? Are we patriotic? Many of us we don’t appreciate our local products and the same time the environment is not conducive for locals and foreign investors, more works need to be done on transportation. The country has to develop its road network in order to boost its locals and foreign investors. It has to create more institutions or develop those that it has before to be more effective to handle all necessary sectors. The country’s man power is good and people are ready to work, and getting people to work, the jobs have to be there, though, it is not going to be magical but with continue persistence the nation will achieve its dream to be among the nation to be proud of.

  54. Nigerian population is getting too much alongside the definition of what is considered critical. Overpopulation causes too much stress on the economy, agriculture, power, and all resources, which will eventually make it virtually impossible to sustain the nation and its peoples. One day Nigeria will need to apply the same remedy that China did with a “one child per family doctrine”…otherwise there will be chaos.

  55. My bank charges me at the rate of 386.8 naira to dollar.
    Please we need cbn intervention in this matters.
    Our commercial banks are becoming threat to naira values every day.

  56. Thanks very much, i sold my payoneer fund today for $340

  57. There is a reasonable explanation ( if not ,,,”politically correct “)
    ….viz. “All men are created equal” but the evidence is overwhelming that Africans may just somehow be …”less equal”
    Hence – Corruption , confusion , incompetence and rampant violence prevail throughout Africa ….Africa servers the civilized world mainly as a source of raw materials … A reality which is of course not accepted by most Africans .

  58. Nigeria that should be on top is now down in every aspect ,look at our Maria is useless it save for nothing, but we are asserting Nigeria were did this Name Nigeria come from. The origin of Nigeria is were.poor are getting poorer rich are getting rich while like this. Nigeria is not Nigeria I know 10years ago.we need a chenage.
