Anagram of Currency

How well up are you on the world currency?

Which of the following is not an anagram of currency?
  1. zetqulea
  2. yomased
  3. dasruco
  4. vilbaor
  5. tatres
  6. terecses


  1. It's either 2.) or 5.)

    1.) = Quetzal (Guatemala)
    3.) = Crusado (Ancient Portugal)
    4.) = Bolivar (Venezuela)
    6.) = Sesterce (Ancient Rome)

    That leaves yomassed (which the only thing I could think of was Samoyed- a breed of dog) or tatres (which I unscrambled to be tetras- a type of fish.) This was really hard!

  2. You figured it all out, except for the misspelling I put in! Sorry about that.
    Samoyed is a dog. The others are: quetzale, crusado, bolivar, tester, and sesterce...

    In case you were wondering:
    "An English coin stamped with the image of Henry VIII's head. In this sense, also called tester"
