CUC

ISO 4217 code for the Cuban convertible peso. The peso is one of two official currencies in Cuba, the other being the "ordinary" Cuban peso. One may exchange convertible pesos for other currencies. That is, in order to convert pesos, one must first convert them to convertible pesos, which are then exchangeable for other currencies. Most workers receive portions of their salaries in both currencies; they buy basic items like food with pesos and use CUC for luxury goods.
