50,000 Bolivares, Cincuenta Mil
Venezuelan Coins

One of my favorite parts about traveling is examining the currency of any country we visit.

Above you'll see an arrangement of "Cincuenta Mil" (50,000) Bolivares bills and some coins.

The coins come in denominations of  50 Bolivares, and 500 Bolivares.

The bills come in denominations of 1000, 5000, 10000, 20000, and 50000 Bolivares.

This currency is issued by the "Banco Central De Venezuela" and has a variety of anti-counterfeiting features such as holographic strips.

Since our trip, Venezuela has switched over to using the "Bolivar Fuerte". The old official exchange rate was about 2,150 Bolivares per $1 US Dollar.
