The supremo (symbol: §; ISO code: JRS) is the official currency of Jardinia. It was first issued in 1969 to replace the Jardinian peso, which had been the currency since independence. It is divided into 100 céntimos.

At present, the Jardinian supremo is worth 0.0000263 USD and one USD is worth 38,000 JRS, which makes the supremo one of the lowest valued currencies in the world.

History

The supremo was introduced on January 1, 1969 to replace the Jardinian peso —the official currency in Jardinia since independence— and other unofficial methods of payment. This decision was made by the right-wing government of Monzón as part of the anticolonialist program of the late 60s. The supremo and the peso coexisted until December 31, 1973, when the peso was officially withdrawn.

In 2008, the economic crisis led to a major inflation of the supremo, which has continued ever since because of the economic, social and political crisis and the failed attempts of the government to stop the devaluation. Now, the supremo is one of the lowest valued currencies in the world, which an exchange rate of 38,000§ for each USD.

In 2017, the government launched a new series of coins and banknotes and introduced the 500,000§ banknote. The government also planned to eliminate céntimos, but a study from the Central Bank determined that céntimo coins were still widely used in the country despite their petty value and that their removal was unfeasible.
