The back presents the Coat of Arms of Peru and the writing "BANCO CENTRAL DE RESERVA PERU" (Central Reserve Bank of Peru). The new and old S/. 1 coin as well as the S/. 1 coins of the Wealth and Pride series circulate simultaneously and can be used in any transaction.

The Marca Peru

With significant changes in Peru over the past decade, a booming economy and increasing tourism it was time to re-brand Peru's image to the world. In 2011 not only a new logo, but also a huge advertising campaign was launched spreading Peru's new country brand around the world nand giving the country a new identity. The "Marca Pais Peru" (Peru's country brand) was created to promote the country nationally and internationally, showing Peru's beauties and opportunities. The new brand unifies the efforts in terms of tourism, exports and investments. At the same time it boosts the image of Peru in the areas of gastronomy, art and culture.
