IUSA vs VUSA - Which is better?

I am thinking of investing in either the IUSA or the VUSA. I am a beginner investor but to me they look very similar, although I can see one is in GBP & the other in USD. Do currency differences make much of a difference if you are investing in an ETF? Sorry if the answer to this is obvious! I’m not sure what impact currency has on them however.

You’ll have to pay Freetrade a fee of 0.45% to buy the USD one

That’s just for US stocks not funds. These ETFs are GBP versions. Dollar ETFs can’t be bought on freetrade.

They’re essentially the same with some minor differences.
