Dominican Republic Currency
This gallery shows you what the Dominican Republic’s currency looks like. They are called Pesos and uses the “$” sign as it’s symbol (RD$). They have both coins and paper money. Bigger denominations are paper/banknotes and smallest being the coins.
Smallest coin amount: 1 Peso | Biggest banknote/paper amount: 2000 Pesos (which is missing from the gallery, didn’t have time to get a hold of one and take a picture, feel free to Google that if you want). $1 USD = about 50 Pesos. Use the XE Currency converter for live and accurate market rates.
Your Dollars Go A Long Way but… Beware: just because the Dominican Republic’s denominations (bank notes) are huge does not mean the money is useless or “monopoly money”. Use it wisely or else you will run out or find yourself easily blowing through hundreds of dollars (I know from personal experience, believe me). That 1000 pesos you see in the gallery is about $20 USD. I am quite certain that you care about how you would spend your $20 USD, so treat that 1000 pesos or any pesos the same way. It’s REAL money and should be treated with respect (of course some currencies like the USD get most respect but all money is to be respected nonetheless).
