Info I found says about 15.48/1
I remember using 15 as my 'calculate in my head' # when I started living here in 2000.
Was about 12 or 13/1 way back when I started travelling here in the early 90's.





Beat me to it, Matilda.

Guys like Hillbilly and I remember when it was 1/1.
Fortunately, as Pichardo reminds us, the DR is on the gold standard which is clearly helping to keep the valuation of the Dominican peso stable for decades on end. :dead:
