History of Spanish Currency

Until adopting the euro in 2002, the peseta was the currency of Spain. Established in 1869, the peseta was also the de facto currency of Andorra alongside the French franc.

Although the euro replaced the peseta on currency exchange boards in 1999, it wasn’t until March 2002 when the peseta lost its legal tender status in Spain and Andorra. This was because euro coins and notes were not introduced until January 2002.

Even though it isn’t legal currency, peseta notes and coins can still be exchanged for euros at any branch of the Spanish Central Bank until December 2020. As of 2011, it was thought that around 1.7 billion euros worth of pesetas had not been converted.

When the peseta was converted to the euro, it is thought that money laundering from mafia bosses caused a real estate boom. Here, the bosses spent billions of pesetas of dubious origin on real estate just prior to the official exchange. Then, after the exchange, the real estate was sold to legally obtain euros.
