SDR

Special Drawing Right. An artificial 

Currency

 unit based upon several national currencies. The Special Drawing 

Right

 serves as the official 

Monetary

 unit of several 

International

 organizations including the 

International

 Monetary 

Fund

, and acts as a supplemental reserve for national 

Banking

 systems. For members of the IMF, the Special Drawing Rights can be used to 

Settle

 trade balances between countries and to repay the IMF. An 

IMF

 member country has to supply 

ITS

 own 

Currency

 to another member country in 

Exchange

 for 

SDR

, unless that country already holds a certain specified amount of SDRs.
