colones
The colón (named
after Christopher
Columbus, known as
Cristóbal Colón in
Spanish) is the currency
of Costa Rica. The plural
is colones. The ISO 4217
code is CRC.
The symbol for the
colón is a capital letter
"C" crossed by two
diagonal strokes. The
symbol is encoded at U
+20A1 ₡ colón sign
(HTML: ₡)[1] and
may be typed on many
English language
Microsoft Windows
keyboards using the
keystrokes ALT+8353.
The colón sign is not to
be confused with U
+00A2 ¢ cent sign
(HTML: ¢ ¢),
or with the Ghanaian
cedi, U+20B5 ₵ cedi sign
(HTML: ₵).
Nonetheless, the
commonly available cent
symbol '¢' is frequently
used locally to
designate the colón in
price markings and
advertisements.
The United States dollar
is also accepted
unofficially in some
places throughout
Costa Rica
