How many currencies are there in the world?

Iraqi dinar denominationsAccording to

As of April 2012 there are 167 currencies in the world.

According to Wikipedia:

This list contains the 182 current official or de facto currencies of the 193 United Nations member states, two UN observer states, nine partially recognized or unrecognized states (in bold), and 33 dependencies (in italics). Only dependencies and unrecognized countries that use a currency other than that of the sovereign state that administers them or has de jure jurisdiction over them are listed here. Currencies used in places of extraterritoriality like the United Nations or the Sovereign Military Order of Malta and scrips used by private entities are not under the purview of this list.
A currency is a unit of exchange and hence a kind of money and medium of exchange. Currency includes paper, cotton, or polymer banknotes and metal coins. Countries generally have a monopoly on the issuing of currency, although some countries share currencies with other countries. Today, currencies are the dominant means of exchange. Different countries may use the same term to refer to their respective currencies, even though the currencies may have little else to do with each other. A place that is technically part of another country sometimes uses a different currency from that of the parent country.

I posted this to “debunk” the “intell” provided by some of the guru’s. They have stated over and over that there is a global reset underway and it involves 192 currencies…How is that even possible if these links don’t even have 192 currencies in the world? If you will copy and paste the following url’s into your browser, you will see the list from Wikipedia, notice that many countries use multiple currencies. I just do not have the time or the patience to accurately count the currencies from the Wikipedia link, maybe someone out there does and can send me an answer based off this link. It certainly appears that these guru’s with “sources” and “contacts in all parts of Government around the globe are very in-correct. If they are this far off from there “sources”, you have to ask yourself what else have they stated and continue to state that is in-correct.

Please correct me if I am off on my numbers, just sharing factual reports with links, you decide.
