Haitian Gourde

Haitian gourde currency:

The official currency of Haiti is gourde or goud and ‘G’ is the symbol of Haitian gourde. It is a decimalized currency and it is further subdivided into one hundred equal units called centimes. In 1813, the first gourde was introduced to replace the livre at a rate of 1 gourde = 8 livres and 5 sous. The Gourde was revalued in 1870 at a rate of 10 to 1. The Gourde was again revalued in 1872 at a rate of 300 to 1. The Bank of the Republic of Haiti replaced the National Bank in 1979 as the paper money issuing body.

The coins that are presently in usage are 5, 10, 20, 50 centimes, 1, 5 gourdes and the bank notes 10, 25, 100, 250, 500, 1000 gourdes are frequently used in Haiti and 1, 2, 5, 20, 50 gourdes are rarely used, which were issued by the Bank of the Republic of Haiti.
