The Dobra is the official currency of Sao Tome and Principe. One US dollar is worth around 21,000.00 STN. The Dobra (STN) is the currency of Sao Tome and Principe, which is situated in the Gulf of Guinea. It was first introduced in 1977, replacing the Sao Tome and Principe escudo. The dobra is subdivided into 100 centimos. The Central Bank of Sao Tome and Principe is responsible for issuing and managing the currency. The dobra is widely used throughout the country and is accepted at most major businesses, including hotels, restaurants, and shops.
