From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The colón () is the currency of two North American nations:

The Costa Rican colón is divided into 100 céntimos; the El Salvadoran colón is divided into 100 centavos.

In Spanish, the plural form is colones, but it is frequently rendered in English as colons (pronounced like colognes).


The same symbol for colon () is used in both El Salvador and Costa Rica. In Unicode, its code point is U+20A1, and the decimal representation is 8353.
