I am not sure if I have to say:
  • a sharp rise in the Single Currency, or
  • a sharp rise of the Single Currency
The results in Google don´t help me much. It is a phrase in an economic article about the rates of the Euro (Single Currency).

Thank you.

    Context is everything:

    A sharp rise in the Single Currency means there's a rise within that system.
    A sharp rise of the Single Currency means there's a rise in the Single Currency against something else, possibly another value system.
