Spanish term or phrase: m$n or m/n
What does this mean in monetary terms? And how do I translate it. The document is from Argentina and every amount has the above attached.

ex. $1.588.700 m/n or m$n 1.588.700

Please help?

Explanation:
I think you should leave it in Spanish.
Although this is the name of an old currency (at least 15 or 20 years old).
we have now only $ (Pesos) $ 1 = U$S 1 since 1986.

Good Luck! :)

mn or whatever=moneda nacional


Explanation:
It should not require translation, except a footnote stipulating what it means and indicating that it is the currency of the country. (I guess in this case, pesos argentinos).

"pesos in domestic currency"


Explanation:
would be acceptable, with a footnote associated with the first appearance of "m/n" or "m$n" explaining the history of the term.

Explanation:
Since 1992 we have only $ = pesos. M$n and m/n were used at different times. Please don´t remember me the awful inflation times we suffered!
