The Creeperian Colón (symbol: ; code: CLN; also abbreviated: CLN₡; Creeperian SpanishCreeperian: Ծոլօն Ծրեեպերիանո; Creeperian Spanish – Iberic: Colón Creeperiano; Creeperian Spanish pronunciation: [koˈlon kri-per-iˈa-no]; plural: Colón or Colónes) is the official currency of Creeperopolis, El Salvador, and the State of the Church. It is also unofficially used by Sequoyah. The Colón was introduced on 17 July 2003 after the Creeperian Dollar was abolished following severe hyperinflation.

The Colón is subdivided into 100 centavos, its ISO 4217 code is CLN, and its ISO 4217 number is 1381, symbolically after the year Admiral Cristóbal Colón Cámarillo discovered the San Carlos Islands, whom the currently is named after. The currency is fiat money and is not backup up by gold or any other material.

Overview

Constitutionality

The Creeperian Colón is not defined in the Constitution of Creeperopolis nor is the process of minting any currency. The Ministry of the Treasury de facto has the responsibility of minting and issuing the Colón, which it does through the National Mint of Creeperopolis and Central Reserve Bank of Creeperopolis, respectively.

Decimal units

The Colón only has one official decimal unit:

  • Centavo (Ծենտավո) (¢): worth one one-hundredth (​1100) of a Colón

Etymology

The Colón is named after Admiral Cristóbal Carlos Colón Cámarillo. He was chosen as the namesake of the currency by the Romerist Military Junta because of his importance in Creeperian history and because he has sometimes been associated with establishing the economy of the San Carlos Islands, which has since become one of the strongest in Creeperopolis.
