A silver coin of Venezuela, of the same value as the Franc, and named after Simon Bolivar, the liberator. It is divided into one hundred Centimos, or Cen- tavos. For the different systems of mone- tary standards in use in Venezuela, see the Annual Report of the Director of the U. S. Mint , 1912, and for the Peso system, still in use to some extent, see Peso. The Boli- var is sometimes called Venezolano.
