The ISO 4217 currency code for Costa Rican Colon.

CRC

ISO 4217 code for the Costa Rican colon. It began circulating in 1896, replacing the Costa Rican peso. It was on a crawling peg with respect to the U.S. dollar until 2006. In October of that year, it was allowed to float within a range with a set floor and a changing ceiling. In many places in Costa Rica, the dollar circulates alongside the colon.
