The financial crisis has led to the setting up of the G20 and to a historically large new allocation of Special Drawing Rights. Is this signaling the end of the dominant role of the U.S. dollar and to a new world order based on a global currency? The paper argues that, for many reasons, there is readily available currency to replace the dollar although the era of a dollar-only international currency is coming to an end.

Keywords: international currency; foreign reserves; U.S. dollar; SDR
