Back to Hyperinflation Banknotes

Like many other South American countries, Uruguay has experienced inflationary pressure. The highest denomination before 1975 was 10,000 Pesos. In the 1975 currency reform, 1 Nuevo Peso was exchanged for 1,000 Pesos. By 1992, the highest denomination was 500,000 Nuevos Pesos. In the 1993 currency reform, 1 Peso Uruguayo was exchanged for 1,000 Nuevos Pesos. The overall impact of inflation, 1 Peso Uruguayo = 1,000,000 pre 1975 Pesos.
