1997 Dominican Republic 5 Pesos

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

Back in the day finding Dominican coins in my change was common. Unfortunately in the last few years it has become more difficult. While New York still has a large Dominican community it is not to the levels of the 1980s.

On the seedier side people use to buy Dominican quarters for a few cents a piece and then use them in parking meters. I guess the new meters do not have the same loop hole.

REPUBLICA DOMINICANA (Dominican Republic) 1997  center 5 PESOS///// 50 ANIVERSARIO BANCO CENTRAL 1947-1997 (50th Anniversary - Central Bank) center SANCHEZ


Note the edge is segmented or partial reeded. This is common way of reeding in many countries use it to both stop counterfeiting and help for the visually impaired.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 5 Pesos / Dominican Republic
Year: 1997
Mintage: Unknown
Metal: Bi-Metallic: Stainless Steel Center, Brass Outer Ring
Value: $0.75 in Very-Fine

Canadians still come in at over 20 a year.

Lately British coins have been showing up a lot more.

Can you recommend a good site and/or shop to buy Dominican Proof coins, or other collectible Dominican coins? (besides Ebay)

Unfortunately I do not.

Heritage Auctions occasionally sells these types. Also try coin forums and just start a page looking for good DR coin sites.

Sorry I could not help but I will keep an ear out for good legit sites.

Try eBay or a coin forum, maybe a coin shop but these are common and hold little interest.
