Peruvian Intis were the currency of Peru between 1985 and 1991. The Inti was named after the Incan sun god and was introduced in 1985, replacing the Sol (sun) at a rate of 1000 soles to 1 inti.

The Sol had lost a lot of value because of high inflation in Peru. By dropping three zeroes and renaming the national currency, the Peruvian government hoped to normalise the monetary situation.

In 1985, the Banco Central de Reserva del Perú  introduced banknotes in denominations of 10, 50, 100 and 500 intis. Peruvian coins in 1985 were 0.01, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.50, 1 and 5 intis. Peru’s new government led by Alan García saw good results at first, but it wasn’t long until inflation would come back with a vengeance.
