Description

The peso is the official currency in Uruguay since 1993. Because of World War II’s economic difficulties, the peso was replaced by the “new peso” in 1975, but in 1993 the peso returned as official currency in the country. The first coins were issued in 1994 in denominations 10, 20 and 50 centésimos, 1 and 2 pesos uruguayos. The 5 and 10 coins were published between 2003 and 2004 and replaced the correspondents’ notes. A new series was introduced in 2011 with denominations of 1-, 2-, 5- and 10-pesos coins.

The 1 Peso Uruguayo coin front design features José Gervasio Artigas (1974 – 1850), who was a national hero and known to many as the Father of Uruguayan Nationality. The reverse coin design has the denomination and the issue year. This coin is part of the 1994 – 2007 series, its rim is plain, and its color is gold.
