Money in Argentina

Argentines use the $ sign to indicate the Argentine peso, so unless you see US$, the currency is indicated in Argentine pesos, not US dollars.

You may have heard about the “blue dollar” rate and are wondering if you should make use of it. Read more in these articles on Bloomberg and CNN Money.
