The sol is the legal tender in Peru. since 1991 and replaced the inti, which circulated between 1985 and 1991, at first it was also called “new sun” to differentiate it from its predecessor, but for the year 2015 it is only called sun.
The emergence of the new sun is understood after the global crisis of 1929, which led to a deep economic and exchange crisis to the country, as well as the creation of the Central Reserve Bank of Peru. It was during the first year of Alberto Fujimori’s government that the new sun was promoted to balance hyperinflation and reorder the economy.
After it came into force, one sol was equivalent to one million intis or one billion “old” soles; today the currency is divided into 100 cents and its issuance is regulated by the Central Reserve Bank of Peru.
Currently circulating coins of 10, 20, 50 cents, 1, 2 and 5 soles and bills of 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 soles. Before, 1-cent coins were also minted, but these were withdrawn from circulation in May 2011, while in January 2019 the 5-cent coins went out of circulation.
