Coins and notes
The Argentine peso is divided into 100 centavos, with 1c, 5c, 10c, 25c and 50c coins.
Banknotes come in $2, $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 denominations.
Small peso coins were hard to come by in Argentina for a few years, particularly in larger cities. However, this issue has improved in the wake of the Argentine financial crisis, which wreaked havoc with the country’s economy from 1999 to 2002. Small change isn’t such a big deal these days.
