Magento – Move Currency Switcher to the Header

If you would like to move the currency switcher from the left column to the header, you can use the following instructions to do so!
Open /app/design/frontend/default/default/layout/page.xml
Locate:

<block type="page/html_header" name="header" as="header">

Change to:

<block type="page/html_header" name="header" as="header">
<block type="directory/currency" name="currency" template="directory/currency.phtml"/>

Open /app/design/frontend/default/default/template/page/html/header.phtml
After:

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('store_language') ?>

Insert:

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('currency') ?>

Save, Upload + Clear Cache
Make sure you have imported or manually entered your Currency Rates otherwise the switcher will not appear!
Its as simple as that!!
