The Colombian peso is the official currency circulating in Colombia since 1810, the year in which it replaced the real, the legal tender until that date. After a series of changes, in 1871 Colombia adopted the gold standard, pegging the peso to the French franc on an exchange rate of one peso to five francs, a rate which was maintained until 1886. The convertibility of Colombian pesos into gold came to an end in 1931. Despite all this, the banknotes issued by the Bank of the Republic continued bearing their denominations in golden pesos until 1993, when a lawsuit filed by ex-senator Pablo Victoria before the State Council caused the word “golden” and the phrase “will pay the bearer” to be removed from all banknotes. The design of this banknote was put into circulation on 17 November 2006, with a date of edition of 1 November 2005. These notes have the same design and identical general characteristics and security features as those of the previous series, dated 3rd March 2005, but they differ in size, going from 70x140 mm to 65x130 mm. this banknote is Commemorative Edition of Jorge Eliécer Gaitán. This important personage, whose influence in the national life has extended after his death, pays tribute to the Bank of the Republic when doing this edition of the one thousand peso bill that already begins to circulate.
