Cuban Peso(redirected from Cuban currency)
Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Wikipedia.
One of two official currencies in Cuba. The other is the convertible peso. The Cuban peso has no official value outside of Cuba. 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 Cuban pesos, and use convertible pesos for luxury goods.
