The Costa Rican Colon (named after Admiral Cristóbal Colón) is the official currency in Costa Rica. During the colonial era, Spanish currency circulated, and from Costa Rican independence in 1821, the usual currency was first the real and then the peso. Starting in 1896, the “Gold Heel” law was enacted, establishing the Colon as a monetary unit, replacing the peso. In 1950 the Central Bank of Costa Rica was established and, from 1951, began issuing provisional banknotes in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 colones. Then in 1958, started the second issue of 500, 1000, 2000, 5000, and 100000 colones 

Currently, are circulating banknotes in denominations of 1,000, 2,000, 5,000, 10,000, 20,000 and 50,000 Costa Rican colones.
