Bolivia, officially Plurinational State of Bolivia is a landlocked country in west central South America, named after Simon Bolivar, hero of the liberation wars against the Spanish Empire. It is bordered by Brazil to the north and east, Paraguay and Argentina to the south, and Chile and Peru to the west. Its principal exports are tin, zinc, antimony, tungsten, petroleum, natural gas, cotton and coffee. It is one of the poorest countries in South America.

Bolivian Coins
The first boliviano was introduced in 1827. It was equivalent to eight soles or half a scudo in the former currency. Initially, it was subdivided into 100 centécimos but this was altered to centavos in 1870. In 1864, copper 1 and 2 centecimos, and silver 1 boliviano were introduced. In 1870, silver 5, 10 and 20 centavos were introduced, followed by silver 50 centavos in 1873 and copper 1 and 2 centavos in 1878. In 1883, cupro-nickel 5 and 10 centavos were introduced.
In 1988, stainless-steel 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 centavo and 1 boliviano (dated 1987) coins were introduced, followed by stainless-steel 2 bolivianos in 1991.
