A woman pays for a coffee with a new 50-Bolivar-coin and a Bolivar-note of the same denomination in downtown Caracas on December 28, 2016.


Venezuela took delivery on December 27 of its third load of new, bigger denomination banknotes, its central bank said, but there was no sign of them in circulation yet despite official promises and mounting public anxiety. Maduro's announcement that the 100-bolivar notes would suddenly no longer be legal tender provoked long lines of people trying to change them, and looting and rioting in some areas, resulting in four deaths. / AFP / FEDERICO PARRA        (Photo credit should read FEDERICO PARRA/AFP/Getty Images)
