Before 1859 Spain was using the real as a legal tender. In 1864 it was replaced by silver escudo. In 1868 peseta was
introduced as Spain joined the Latin Monetary Union. 1 peseta equals 100 centimos.
In 2002 Spain introduced the euro.
Images of 2000, 5000, 10.000 pesetas banknotes were kindly provided
by David Rivera Alonso, collector from Spain and a friend of mine. His site can
