Currency Drop Down Question

I’m new to Magento and I’ve been playing around with the layouts and template pages. I am trying to reposition the currency drop down on the right bar on the home page. The reason for this is that I’ve enabled products to be viewed on the homepage and they are showing up with no option to the the prices in different currencies.

I changed the directory.xml file to display the following:

reference name="right">
block type="directory/currency" name="currency" before="catalog.leftnav" template="directory/currency.phtml"/>

This makes the currency drop down show up in the right bar on the category pages but not on the homepage!

Does anybody know a way to display the currency at ALL times (homepage included) in the right bar?

Any help is greatly appreciated smile
