The Central Bank of San Marino, "(Italian "Banca Centrale della Repubblica di San Marino")", is the central bank of San Marino.

The bank was created in 2005 . It has been superseded "de facto" by the European Central Bank . However, is is not member of the European System of Central Banks or the Eurosystem as San Marino is not considered part of the eurozone, but a third country that has decided to adopt the euro (a situation similar to Montenegro).

The purposes of the BCSM are established in the 3rd article of the national law № 96 of the 29th June 2005:
* promote the stability of the financial system and watch credit flows.
* provide financial services to the state and public institutions in order to coordinate available cash flow and other financial sources
* provide a sustainable financial system for San Marino.
* Simplify economic activities by maintaining a payment system for the republic that is efficient and secure.

Owing to a special agreement with the European Commission (on behalf of Italy), San Marino may issue a limited amount of euro coins every year, although Italy mints them in practice.
