The first Dominican peso was introduced in 1844, when the country gained its independence from Haiti. The peso lasted until 1905 – it was replaced by the US dollar, which is still used today as a reserve currency by the Central Bank of the Dominican Republic. The peso oro came along in 1937, and in 2011 the country reverted back to its original pesos – with banknotes available in units of 50, 100, 200, 500, 1,000 and 2,000.
