Currency Information on Panamanian Balboa - PAB - Panamanian balboa – b/
The balboa is one of two official currencies of Panama; the other is the US dollar. The balboa was introduced in 1904, replacing the Colombian peso.
The balboa is continually equal to one US dollar and is pegged to it as such. The name ‘balboa’ is in recognition of the conquistador Vasco Nunez do Balboa.
