The bolivar was adopted as Venezuela’s national currency in 1879, when it replaced the venezolano. In 1983 it became unstable because of a high devaluation, and in 2008 it was renamed the bolivar fuerte and revalued at a ratio of 1 to 1,000. Today the bolivar fuerte is available in denominations of 500, 1,000, 2,000, 5,000, 10,000, 20,000 and 100,000. Each bolivar fuerte is subdivided into 100 centimos.
