Feminine noun. Foreign currency referred to the unit of the country in question. Usually used in plural. E.g.: Dólar hoy: a cuánto abrió la divisa el martes 24 de agosto: Dollar today: how much the currency opened at on Tuesday, August 24.
We have the term mercado de divisas: forex market.
We also have the verb divisar, ’to spot, to perceive’, but it is not relatated to the noun divisa. By the way, the English verb ‘to devise’ is translated into Spanish as inventar, crear, planear. dc
