Currencies Personification By Japanese Foreign Exchange Company

We have been reporting how often personification received positive responses from tech/net-friendly consumers. For example, Android handsets, computer virus and popular web services had gotten anthropomorphic images by third-parties.
A Twitter user @kudou39 noticed that a Japanese foreign exchange company SBI FXTrade featured 9 virtual girls for 9 major currencies they are offering trade. Here is a poster he found at station in Tokyo waterfront.
SBI FXTrade’s site has them, too.
The characters embody these currencies;

  • NZD – New Zealand dollar
  • AUD – Australian dollar
  • CHF – Swiss franc
  • USD – United States dollar
  • JPY – Japanese yen
  • EUR – Euro
  • ZAR – South African rand
  • GBP – Pound sterling
  • CAD – Canadian dollar

At the site, each girl has her own “Girl’s Report” corner and provide information around herself.
Some of the currency girls seem to give reports not only in matter-of-fact manner but also with long seasonal greetings, her personal lives in their countries, etc.


  1. I’m not surprised that they chose a blue monster … or at least a not very healthy looking girl to represent the EURO. That’s what it is at the moment anyways.
    And of course they chose the cutest one (YEN) for themselves! 😉

    1. Haha. See those nails on her head, I guess that the illustrator designed the Euro girl based on Frankenstein, as it was merged from several different currencies, though I am not sure if that is really appropriate or anything appeal to their Japanese customers buy/sell Euro on their service. 🙂
