Peanuts is a currency converter.

It has been developed (in 2006) and is maintained by Martin Jansen.

The currency rates are provided by the European Central Bank (ECB) and they are derived from the conversion rate of the currencies to the Euro (EUR).

The service is free of charge. Nonetheless we are monitoring requests and reserve the right to block specific hosts from the site in case of abuse.


This site makes heavy use of PHP 5. No database was harmed in the making of this page. And we love our clean MVC architecture. All great stuff.

The above mentioned currency rates are imported from a XML file that is publically provided by the ECB.


We are not looking for any advertising possibilities at the moment.
