Tropic Winter

Do you have a Ecuadorian coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Winter is here and the year is almost over so that means more foreign finds. These were not high in quality but they were given at the same time and were unexpected.


I think this is my first Ecuadorian find since starting the blog. Although there is a large Ecuadorian community in this area the coins are considered worthless in there country and are not kept or used often. Many young Ecuadorians I have met have never even seen most older coins of their countries. The centavos were devalued and by 2000 they reformed and the centavos got their value back but people were slow to accept the change. The bills were even worse off.

Here are the stats for these...
Type/Country: 25 Cents / Trinidad & Tobago
Year: 1980
Mintage: 15,000,000
Metal: Copper-nickel
Value: $0.15 in XF

Type/Country: 10 Centavos / Ecuador
Year: 2000
Mintage: Not yet known
Metal: Steel
Value: $0.15 in VF

Do you have a Trinidad and Tobago coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.
