COU

ISO 4217 code for the Colombian unidad de valor real. It is a unit of account in Colombia that does not circulate. It is adjusted for inflation relative to the Colombian peso so that its value remains stable. Because of this stability, major purchases (notably mortgages) in Colombia may be quoted in COU terms.
