Peso Boliviano

The former currency of Bolivia. It was introduced in 1963 as a way to stave off inflation. It was pegged to the U.S. dollar until 1979, when it began to operate under a managed float. It suffered from high inflation throughout its history, especially in the mid-1980s. It was replaced by the boliviano in 1986.
