2001 Panama Cent

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

So far this has been my only change find for December. Apparently gift cards and debit cards will be the down fall of this blog. Well at least I still have a box full of old coins to share.

The ninth Panamanian coin I found most of them are common. All modern coins from Panama are a fraction of the Balboa. So this one is 1/100th of a Balboa.

URRACA (Urracá, indigenous freedom fighter of colonial Panama) 2001
REPUBLICA DE PANAMA, UN CENTESIMO DE BALBOA

Two weeks left in the year and if all I find is more Panamanian coins I am fine with that. Still there is one foreign coin I need to make my yearly list complete but let me not speak of it until the year is over.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Centesimo / Panama
Year: 2001
Mintage: 160,000,000
Metal: Copper Plated Zinc
Value: $0.07 in Extra-Fine

Made at the Royal Canadian Mint although it has no mintmark.

Do you have a Panamanian 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.

This is a very cool coin. I've never seen one before.

I've never seen one before.
--It's the second type this of coin I found, the metal is the same but the weight is about 0.06 grams less. It looks so much a U.S. cent when they are bunched together.

Tyler Lawrence said...

I saw the Panama dime post, and the design looks good on it, too. This picture makes the coin look bigger than what it is. Cool find nonetheless!

Yes, I thought of making the pictures more size accurate but I like to see details. If I ever turn this blog to proper website I will resize the pictures.

Tyler Lawrence said...

The detail is good. It's nice to see the coins up close.

I was going through all your "Star Note" posts and that got me searching my wallet and I found a 2004 series Twenty with a star note. Do you know anything about it?

Man said...

2004 series Twenty with a star note

What is the serial number?

Tyler Lawrence said...

E J00490061

Man said...

2004 series Twenty with a star note E J00490061

About $22.00 it is one of the more common star notes with 3,200,000 printed.

Tyler Lawrence said...

I never knew what a star note was until I read the posts on your site, thanks! I'm going to go through my other bills and I'll let you know if I find another one.

Man said...

Yeah they are just replacement notes if the normal printing gets ruined. All star notes have extra value, most just a couple dollars but some are very valuable.

Tyler Lawrence said...

I received one in change today. 2006 series one dollar bill with the serial number B 01470068.

Man said...

2006 series one dollar bill with the serial number B 01470068*

What makes certain star notes have extra value than other star notes?

The amount printed, any printing 640,000 or under is considered scarce.
Average is 3,200,000.

With the end of the year only a few days away, I'm curious as to what coin you need to complete your list- and if you'll find it. Do keep us posted!

I found one of the Panama coins today. It is just like the one you picture, except it is 1996. I have never seen one of these and I consider it a great find! I like your site.
