LIMA May 24 (Reuters) - Peru's central bank on Friday offered to sell 300 million soles in two-month certificates to slow the depreciation of sol, which slipped as much as nearly 1 percent to 2.689 bid.

The sol, which had been trading at a 16-year-high, has now retreated to its weakest level in the past year.
