Translated from Spanish (one of the official languages of Peru), "Nuevo Sol" means "New Sol". It was used as a temporary currency from 1991 to 2015 during the fight against high inflation in Peru.
In turn, sol is the national currency of the Republic of Peru during 1863-1935 and since 2015 (1935-1985 — sol de oro; 1985-1991 — inti).
