The bolívar fuerte has been the currency of Venezuela since 1 January 2008. It is subdivided into 100 céntimos and replaced the original bolívar at the rate of Bs.F. 1 = Bs. 1,000 because of inflation. The bolívar was adopted by the monetary law of 1879, replacing the short-lived venezolano at a rate of five bolívares to one venezolano. Initially, the bolívar was defined on the silver standard, equal to 4.5g fine silver, following the principles of the Latin Monetary Union.
