Last 120 days

Text Box: 	The peso uruguayo (ISO 4217 code: UYU) is the official currency of Uruguay. It is subdivided into 100 centésimos.
	After further inflation, the peso uruguayo replaced the nuevo peso, again at a rate of 1000 to 1, on March 1, 1993.
	In 2002, after a banking crisis  the currency was allowed to float, losing almost 50% of its value in a couple of weeks.
	Since 2004 a phenomenon completely new to most Uruguayans developed: the currency appreciated in nominal terms against the US dollar, going from 30 to 21 pesos to the dollar. This revaluation brought protests from the industrial sector, which felt that it lost competitiveness. The government hopes that a floating currency will "de-dollarize" the economy.
