The official currency of Chile is the peso which is symbolized with the "$" sign and retains the code "CLP" in international currency markets. The CLP is controlled by the Banco Central de Chile and is commonly valued against the United States dollar (USD). From 1975 through 1994 the CLP was in constant decline against the USD, since that time it has been in a slow appreciation against the USD.
Each CLP peso is divided into 100 subunits known as centavos. Due to inflation there are no current centavo coins in circulation. The coins that are officially recognized are denominated in 1, 5, 10, 50, 100, and 500 pesos and the banknotes in circulation are denominated as 1000, 2000, 5000, 10,000, and 20,000 pesos. The CLP is slowly transitioning to polymer banknotes and while the 1000, 2000, and 5000 pesos paper notes remain legal tender they have been replaced with corresponding value polymer notes. This transition is primarily in place to combat counterfeiting.
