No, you'll get more for your Dominican pesos if you sell when the Dominican peso buyback rate is low. This is due to a quirk of how British currency providers display their buyback exchange rates.
When you buy Dominican pesos, the exchange rate you get is the amount of Dominican pesos you'll receive for every pound that you spend, so for example a rate of 70 means you'd get $70 for each £1 that you spend. You can calculate the total amount of Dominican pesos you'd receive for a given amount of sterling by simply multiplying the sterling amount by the exchange rate.
When it comes to selling Dominican pesos, the buyback rate is expressed in terms of how many Dominican pesos you'd need to sell in order to get £1, so a buyback rate of 70 means you'd need to sell $70 to get £1. To calculate the sterling value of a given amount of Dominican pesos, you need to divide the Dominican peso amount by the buyback rate. Since you're dividing by the buyback rate, a lower buyback rate means you'd get more sterling compared to a higher buyback rate.
