CAPE VERDE

(escudo = 100 centavos)

90-CVE

Text Box: 	Until independence in 1975, the Cape Verde escudo was equal to the Portuguese escudo and, since 1999, both escudos were tied, at a rate of PTE 1 = CVE 0.55, or approximately CVE 1 = PTE 1.8182. After the replacement of the Portuguese escudo with the euro, the Cape Verde escudo is pegged to the euro at a rate of EUR 1 = CVE 110.265.
	The present coinage was introduced in 1994 in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 escudos. It was issued in four series, one with birds, a second with ships, a third with plants and a fourth with native animals. A 200 escudos coin was issued in 2005 to commemorate 30 years of independence.
