The peso is the currency of Chile. The current peso has circulated since 1975, with a previous version circulating between 1817 and 1960. The symbol used locally for it is $. The ISO 4217 code for the present peso is CLP. It is subdivided into 100 centavos, although no centavo denominated coins remain in circulation. The average exchange rate of the Chilean Peso to the U.S Dollar was 1 U.S. Dollar to 559.7 Chilean Pesos in 2009. The first Chilean peso was introduced in 1817, at a value of 8 Spanish colonial reales. Until 1851, the peso was subdivided into 8 reales, 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 decimos (worth 10 centavos) commenced. From 1925, coins and banknotes were issued denominated in condores, worth 10 pesos. The gold standard was suspended in 1932 and the peso's value fell further. The escudo replaced the peso on January 1, 1960 at a rate 1 escudo = 1000 pesos. The Casa de Moneda started issuing these 5 Chilean Peso coins in 1992. They were withdrawn from circulation in 2015. The gold-coloured Chilean $5 Peso coin is octagonal (8 sided). Although it is the same shape and size as the aluminium 1 Peso coin, it is more than twice the weight due to its aluminium-bronze composition.
