Diagnosis of the Panamanian balboa

The Panamanian balboa is the legal tender in Panama and is abbreviated PAB; It is divided into 100 cents and what characterizes it is that it is not independent money, but a local version of the US dollar.

The Panamanian administration issues its own coins in hundredths and balboas equivalent to dollars although said coins are not legal tender in the United States . It is not the only case, since the Tuvaluan and Kiribati dollar have the same relationship with the Australian dollar.

This link with the US dollar occurred in 1904 after the Panama National Convention. Additionally, in 2010, the one balboa coin entered into circulation, of which 40 million units were issued.

Panamanians did not receive this new currency well and denounced its forced use to the detriment of the US bill, for which reason the currency was called “Martinelli”in reference to the Panamanian president Ricardo Martinelli, who promoted it.

An attempt was also made to print coins of two and five balboas, but the project was later cancelled. Currently there are coins of one and five hundredths in circulation; a tenth, a quarter and a half of a balboa, as well as the one balboa.
