Cuba, new 5 pesos cubanos circulating coin
« on: June 17, 2017, 07:47:14 PM »
Hi! I'm glad to let you know that we should open a gap in our collections for a new bimetallic coin that will be put in circulation the next July 3rd.

Please, do not confuse CUC and CUP, the already existent 5 pesos coins with the portrait of "El Che" has it value in "Pesos convertibles", CUC, that is a 1/1 with the US dollar. The new coin is expressed just in pesos, thats mean "Pesos cubanos" or CUP.

1 CUC = 25 CUP

Commemorative coin or standard circulating coin?

Commemorative coin or standard circulating coin?

It is an standard circulating coin that will complete the series of CUP circulation coins consisting in: 1, 2, 5 and 20 centavos, 1, 3 and, from now on, 5 pesos cubanos.

If I have understood correctly, there is a banknote of 5 pesos in circulation. Will it be withdrawn?

If that means the note will continue to be printed, unless Cubans react like Germans, the coin is doomed to lose from the note and will not circulate.

Banco Central de Cuba  says that the most important  reason for this 5-Pesos  coin Is that the life of the coin is longer than the life of the banknote

The banknote, especially in a tropical climate, has a short life
