Portugal Currency Information

Prior to Portugal adopting the Euro on 1st January 1999 the main currency was the Portuguese escudo (PTE). This was sub-divided into 100 centavos. This currency ran alongside the Euro until it was withdrawn from circulation on 28th February 2002.

The escudo was introduced in 1911 after the 1910 republican revolution to replace the real. At the time the exchange rate was set at 1000 reals to 1 escudo. In 1914 the value of the escudo was set at 108.25 PTE = 1.00 GBP sterling and in 1931 changed to 110.00 PTE to 1.00 GBP.

In 1940 after further devaluation a new rate was set at 27.50 PTE = 1.00 US dollar but inflation in the 20th century eroded the value further and smaller denominations of centavos became effectively worthless and were withdrawn from circulation in the 1990's. When Portugal entered the Eurozone the conversion rate was set at 200.482 PTE = 1.00 EUR.
