Cuban peso
The Cuban peso is one of two official currencies in use in Cuba, the other being the convertible peso. Most Cuban state workers receive their wages in national pesos, but some receive a portion of their salary in convertible pesos. Shops that sell basic necessities, such as groceries, generally accept only national pesos, whereas convertible pesos are much more commonplace in "dollar shops", which sell non-essential commodities and goods. The word "peso" may refer to either currency.

This picture shows a five-peso coin, dated 1915, containing on average 8.3592 grams (0.29486 oz) of gold (.900 fine), depicting José Martí on the obverse and the coat of arms of Cuba on the reverse. The coin was engraved by Chief Engraver of the United States Mint Charles E. Barber and struck at the Philadelphia Mint.Coin credit: Charles E.
