At the time of this post, USD1 often written as U$S1 (USDollar) = $19.6 (Urugyuan peso). It's a little confusing to see $ but get used to it, that is the UYU peso, not dollars.
Actually, the sign for uruguayan money is just $. In Colonia del Sacramento, and other places where everybody is used to tourists and foreign currencies, in most of the stores you´ll find signs like $U or UY$ for "peso uruguayo," $Ar for peso argentino and U$S for USDollar. In fact, it seems that just about anything that's expensive (U$S100 or more) has it's price written in USD.
