The florin (sign: Afl.; code: AWG) is the currency of Aruba. It is subdivided into 100 cents. The florin was introduced in 1986, replacing the Netherlands Antillean guilder at par.
The Centrale Bank van Aruba (Central Bank of Aruba) introduced banknotes in denominations of 5, 10, 25, 50 and 100 florin and dated January 1, 1986.
In 1990, the bank issued the same denominations in a colorful new
family of notes designed by Aruban artist Evelino Fingal. As director of
the Archaeological Museum, Fingal found inspiration in old Indian
paintings and pot shards. Fingal combined decorative motives found on
pre-Columbian pottery with pictures of animals unique to the island. The
500-florin notes were introduced in 1993, with the 5-florin note
replaced by a coin in 1995.
