Five Pesetas, Coin Type from Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (issued 1992 - 1992)
Coin TypeFive Pesetas

The first Sahrawi pesetas were minted in 1990, but they were not adopted as the national coin of Western Sahara until 1997. As this territory is mostly controlled by Morocco, the circulating currency in that part of the country is the Moroccan dirham, with Algerian dinar and Mauritanian ouguiya circulating alongside the Sahrawi peseta in the Sahrawi refugee camps and the SADR-controlled part of Western Sahara.
