The rhyming words:

The currencies:

  • The full name of King Alfonso XIII of Spain is Alfonso León Fernando María Jaime Isidro Pascual Antonio de Borbón y Habsburgo-Lorena. The currency is the Sierra-Leonean leone.

  • Karim Benzema plays for (and in the picture wears the strip of) Real Madrid. The currency is the Brazilian real.

  • Sister Krone is a supporting charecter in the manga series The Promised Neverland. The currency is the Danish krone.

  • The Man with No name is a spaghetti western in the Dollars trilogy. The currency is the US dollar.

The matches:

The four rhyming words have the suffix -ide in common and differ by their first two letters, br, sl, gl and pr. These two letters are valid ISO 3166 country codes. The currencies are legal tender in the respective countries. So:

br Brazil — real
sl Sierra Leone — leone
gl Greenland — Danish krone
pr Puerto Rico — US dollar

So the correct matches are 1b, 2a, 3c and 4d.
