1 PESO. CUBA 1915

From 1898 to 1914, the dollar was the official currency of Cuba but the Spanish and French coins also circulated until the 1914 Cuban legislature created the Cuban monetary system, which authorized the minting of coins of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, and 40 cents in cupro-nickel as well as silver coins of 1 peso and 1, 2, 4, 5, 10 and 20 pesos in gold. All were struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1915 and 1916. In 1915 the Cuban legislature banned the use of foreign currencies, except the Cuban and American coins.
