COUNTRIES - CAPITALS  - CURRENCIES

A to B

Here are the countries in the world, together with their capital cities and currencies.  I hope these are accurate, however, in the ever changing world of today it is difficult to keep up to date.

Where I am not confident of the answer I have left gaps, if you can supply any of this missing information or if there is something that you feel should be added to the list, please send it in. june@hintsandthings.co.uk

I would like to thank Tim for supplying some of the collective names for me and to
Ben Hockliffe for filling in a lot of the gaps.
