Current Peruvian Coins

Current Peruvian Coins

The Nuevo Sol is subdivided into 100 Centimos. Coins have been issued for 5 Centimos, 10 Centimos, 20 Centimos, 50 Centimos, S/. 1, S/. 2 and S/. 5. The abbreviation "S/." stands for Nuevo Sol. For each nomination you find a second page with details and images to make sure you quickly feel comfortable with this "strange" money.

For some time now the 1 Centimo coins have been taken out of circulation, but here and there you still might come across one of them. The Nuevos Soles and Centimo coins have been in circulation from 1991 and since then there have been almost no changes, but in 2010 the S/. 1, S/. 2 and S/. 5. coins were issued with a modified design. For the moment both types of coins are valid, legal tender and in circulation simultaneously!
