Chilean peso

The peso is the currency of Chile. The current peso has circulated since 1975, with a previous version circulating between 1817 and 1960, its symbol is defined as a letter S with either one or two vertical bars superimposed prefixing the amount, $ or. Both of these symbols are used by many currencies, most notably the United States dollar, may be ambiguous without clarification, such as CLP$ or US$; the ISO 4217 code for the present peso is CLP. It is subdivided into 100 centavos, although there are no current centavo-denominated coins; the exchange rate was around CLP$720 to 1 United States dollar as of August 2019. The first Chilean peso was introduced at a value of 8 Spanish colonial reales; until 1851, the peso was subdivided with the escudo worth 2 pesos. In 1835, copper coins denominated in centavos were introduced, but it was not until 1851 that the real and escudo denominations ceased to be issued and further issues in centavos and décimos commenced. In 1851, the peso was set equal 5 French francs on the sild, 22.5 grams pure silver.

However, gold coins were issued to a different standard to that of France, with 1 peso = 1.37 grams gold. In 1885, a gold standard was adopted, pegging the peso to the British pound sterling at a rate of ​13 1⁄3 pesos = 1 pound; this was reduced in 1926 to 40 pesos. From 1925, coins and banknotes were issued denominated in worth 10 pesos; the gold standard was suspended in 1932 and the peso's value fell further. The escudo replaced the peso on 1 January 1960 at a rate 1 escudo = 1000 pesos. Between 1817 and 1851, silver coins were issued in denominations of ​1⁄4, ​1⁄2, 1 and 2 reales and 1 peso, with gold coins for 1, 2, 4 and 8 escudos. In 1835, copper ​1⁄2 and 1 centavo coins were issued. A full decimal coinage was introduced between 1851 and 1853, consisting of copper ​1⁄2 and 1 centavo, silver ​1⁄2 and 1 décimo, 20 and 50 centavos, 1 peso, gold 5 and 10 pesos. In 1860, gold 1 peso coins were introduced, followed by cupronickel ​1⁄2, 1 and 2 centavos between 1870 and 1871. Copper coins for these denominations were reintroduced between 1878 and 1883, with copper ​2 1⁄2 centavos added in 1886.

A new gold coinage was introduced in 1895, reflecting the lower gold standard, with coins for 2, 5, 10 and 20 pesos. In 1896, the 1⁄2 and 1 décimo were replaced by 10 centavo coins. In 1907, a short-lived, silver 40 centavo coin was introduced following cessation of production of the 50 centavo coin. In 1919, the last of the copper coins were issued; the following year, cupronickel replaced silver in the 10 and 20 centavo coins. A final gold coinage was introduced in denominations of 20, 50 and 100 pesos. In 1927, silver 2 and 5 peso coins were issued. Cupronickel 1 peso coins were introduced in 1933. In 1942, copper 20 and 50 centavos and 1 peso coins were introduced; the last coins of the first peso were issued between 1954 and 1959. These were aluminum 5 and 10 pesos. Gold bullion coins with nominals in 100 pesos were minted between 1932 and 1980. In addition, there was a special issue of gold coins in 1968; the first Chilean paper money was issued between 1840 and 1844 by the treasury of the Province of Valdivia, in denominations of 4 and 8 reales.

In the 1870s, a number of private banks began issuing paper money, including the Banco Agrícola, the Banco de la Alianza, the Banco de Concepción, the Banco Consolidado de Chile, the Banco de A. Edwards y Cía. the Banco de Escobar, Ossa y Cía. the Banco Mobiliario, the Banco Nacional de Chile, the Banco del Pobre, the Banco Sud Americano, the Banco del Sur, the Banco de la Unión and the Banco de Valparaíso. Others followed in the 1890s. Denominations included 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 500 pesos. One bank, the Banco de A. Edwards y Cía. issued notes denominated in pound sterling. In 1881, the government issued paper money convertible into silver or gold, in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 1000 pesos. 50 centavo notes were added in 1891 and 500 pesos in 1912. In 1898, provisional issues were made by the government, consisting of private bank notes overprinted with the words "Emisión Fiscal"; this marked the end of the production of private paper money. In 1925, the Banco Central de Chile began issuing notes.

The first, in denominations of 5, 10, 50, 100 and 1000 pesos, were overprints on government notes. In 1927, notes marked as "Billete Provisional" were issued in denominations of 5, 10, 50, 100, 500 and 1000 pesos. Regular were introduced between 1931 and 1933, in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 500, 1000, 5000 and 10,000 pesos; the 1 - and 20-peso notes stopped production in 1947, respectively. The remaining denominations continued production until 1959, with a 50,000-peso note added in 1958; the escudo was the currency of Chile between 1975, divided into 100 centésimos. It replaced the old peso at a rate of 1 escudo = 1000 pesos and was itself replaced by a new peso, at a rate of 1 peso = 1000 escudos; the symbol Eº was used for the escudo. Chile issued gold escudos, worth 16 reales or 2 pesos until 1851. In 1960, aluminium 1 centésimo and aluminium-bronze 2, 5 and 10 centésimo coins were introduced, followed by aluminium ​1⁄2 centésimo in 1962. In 1971, a new coinage was introduced, consisting of aluminium-bronze 10, 20 and 50 centésimos and cupro-nickel 1, 2 and 5 escudos.

This coinage was issued for two years, with aluminium 5 escudos produced in 1972. In 1974
