Amersterdam is Turning Down Dollars

News Flash: Amsterdam Doesn't Want Your Dollars

Small currency exchanges in Amsterdam are refusing to exchange dollars because they're worried the shrinking currency will be worth even less by the time they're able to sell it. Tourists looking to sell their dollars in exchange for local money have to resort to larger exchange counters while they're on vacation.

Meanwhile, the euro has remained strong and has risen 18 percent against the dollar in the last year.
