I would contend that the "nuevo sol" was not named after the "inti", but rather after the "sol de oro" that preceeded the inti. Translating the name into quechua was a continuation of the theme, but the link between the Sol and the Sol seems much clearer, and I think this ought to be mentioned. Of course, if Alan does an Alan again, we may have the Nuevo Inti. 126.96.36.199 09:14, 6 May 2007 (UTC)
I think it should be clear that there are two different coins in circulation, one of aluminium and one of brass. They're of radically different thicknesses, and feel as though they have different weights as well.

- Added seperate row to coins table and added picture of aluminium 1 céntimo coin.--ErickAgain 21:15, 8 July 2007 (UTC)
The reference for the sentence "Although 1 and 5 céntimo coins are officially in circulation, they are very rarely used and banks have ceased distributing them" does not support this statement. It just says that the "Nuevo sol" is the currency of Peru since 1991 and that previous monetary units (inti and sol) have been withdrawn from circulation and are no longer valid. I think the reference should be removed as well as the "and banks have ceased distributing them" part which is unsourced and untrue. --Victor12 22:52, 8 July 2007 (UTC)
- I agree, by coincedence I have just removed the same sentence from the nl-wiki.--ErickAgain 22:57, 8 July 2007 (UTC)
Could some use of the currency sign be added? The use of a decimal point in the sign itself is odd, so some confirmation by example would be helpful. Would S/.4.00 be correct usage? --Cybercobra (talk) 00:11, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
