San Marino, located in north central Italy, is the oldest and smallest republic in the world. Founded about 350 A. D. by a stonecutter as a refuge against religious persecution. San Marino does not issue its own paper money although it has issued coins since 1864. The notes issued in 1976 are emergency small denomination issues prompted by a coin shortage. San Marino now uses Euro. For a more detailed country profile, see CIA World Factbook on San Marino.
