1997 Colombia 200 Pesos

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

One of many reasons to upgrade your old books is for the coins not listed. This 1997 Colombian 200 Pesos was not listed even in the 2010 World Coin book by Krause. It is nothing rare or special but occasional omissions are normal.

Another coin that has edge lettering which is common for coins with high denominations. It is a security feature to make counterfeiting more difficult.

 
 
 
 
 

Obverse: REPUBLICA DE COLOMBIA, 200 PESOS, 1997
Edge: *** 200 PESOS *** MOTIVO QUIMBAYA
Reverse:  Quimbaya artwork design

Attempted to take a picture of the entire edge. If I used the Stitch Assist feature or taken a video and stills it would look better. A continuous edge shot but that means a little more patience than I have. Especially when the Jets and Giants were playing on the same day. 

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 200 Pesos / Colombia
Edge: Upside down ↑↓
Year: 1997
Mintage: 37,000,000
Metal: Copper-Zinc-Nickel
Value: $0.15 in Fine

This is a really coin. I think I have some Pesos and if I do, I'll comment with the dates and types later.

No problem.
I'm still posting old coins since I have not found any good finds since Mid-December.

I have a 2008 Mexican Peso. I thought I had some others but they turned out to be Centavos and Bolivianos.

Man said...

2008 Mexican Peso about $0.60 in extra-fine

--These are nice just like U.S and Canada coins most moderns have little value but pre-1940s are the most collectible.

$60 for a 2008 Mexican Peso? Wow! The one I have is it circulated condition with some sort of stain on it.

Besides Canada, most of the foreign coins I have are modern. It's hard to collect old foreign coins here in the U.S. It's too bad I didn't coin collect back in 6th and 8th grade when I went to Canada, or two years ago when I went to Nova Scotia.

--No, 60 cents.

Not $60.00 it says $0.60.

--Being in NYC it is easier but I never lived anywhere else so it is hard to compare.

My bad, I thought it said $60 for some reason.

I did get another star note. The serial number is F 06377406. It's one dollar bill, series 2006.

Depends on grade in mint condition about $1.50 if near-perfect then maybe $11.00

Circulated is $0.60 or less.
