Sterling and ThatcherEdit

In the 70s or 80s durign a financial crisis Thatcher announced that Sterling would cease to be a reserve currency. I believe it was then the second most held reserve, but regardle4ss tis event should be documented here if possible.. Rich Farmbrough, 11:36 19 May 2009 (UTC).

say what?Edit

In the opening I see this...

"However, the U.S. dollar's status as a reserve currency, by increasing in value, hurts U.S. exporters."

This makes no sense. Looks like an edit gone bad.

Number of reserve currencies/years in tableEdit

I'd like to trim the number of reserve currencies to the top 5, and also show data for the previous 15 years only. Including the Swiss Frnac, which has a minuscule holding, seems arbitrary. --User:WoodElf 07:16, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

Reserve currency rankings: contradiction in article?Edit

The Chinese yuan subsection says it "is the third reserve currency after the US dollar and Euro" whereas the "Global currency reserves" table says it's fifth (following the USD, euro, yen, and pound). Perhaps these sources are talking apples and oranges, but for a casual reader, this is not apparent. How to interpret this? And can someone make this clear in the article?
