Why wouldn't the following code work?

The output also doesn't show anything.

let currencies = ["US":"Dollar", "UK":"Pound", "JP":"Yen"]

let ukCurrency = ["UK":"Pondo Libre",]

i do apologize. I totally misunderstood the issue before...

THIS would be the way to go in your case


let currencies = ["US":"Dollar", "UK":"Pound", "JP":"Yen"]
let ukCurrency = currencies["UK"]

Ah, I see. This works.
