For example, which one is best phrased:

  1. The current Dollar value of 10 Euro
  2. The current Dollar worth of 10 Euro
  3. The current Dollar value worth of 10 Euro

Or is there a better way to express the above?

Thank you very much!!!

The first sentence makes sense, though in English "euro" is singular, so you should use "10 euros" instead.

(Also note that in English, currency names aren't capitalised. See https://ell.stackexchange.com/questions/17517/why-arent-currency-names-capitalized)

If you want a slightly clearer/more verbose way of saying it, you could say "The value of 10 euros in dollars is....."

I find all of your examples incorrect.

As per dictionary, 'Worth' means

  1. equivalent in value to the sum or item specified.

"jewellery worth £450 was taken"

  1. sufficiently good, important, or interesting to be treated or regarded in the way specified. "the museums in the district are well worth a visit"

Therefore, you don't have to use both value & worth in the same sentence. The current Dollar worth of 10 Euro can be written this way

The US dollar is worth 10 euros today

or At present the dollar is worth 10 euros

If you want to use 'value', then the answer given by Freddie can be used

    "At present Dollar is worth 10 euros" is ungrammatical: you need some kind of article or other specifier before dollar (which should also be lower-case, as mentioned). You could say "At present one dollar is worth 10 euros" or "At present a dollar is worth 10 euros" or even "At present the dollar is worth 10 euros" (referring to the dollar as an abstract entity). – Stuart F Oct 25 '18 at 13:50
