The centesimo, alternately spelled as centésimo in Spanish-speaking countries, is a currency unit initially used by the states of Italy prior to its unification, and then by unified Italy and its colonies, as well as a handful of Latin American nations. The word is derived from the Latin centesimus, meaning "hundredth". The centesimo has been typically used as the subunit of a variety of decimal currencies, having a value equal to 1/100 of a unit.
