1996 Guyana 5 Dollars

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

This was the first of the circulating five dollar coins in Guyana. Today the exchange value hovers around two and a half cents. They eliminated most coins under a dollar. They have circulating ten dollar coins that are about five cents U.S. So while it has a large denomination it is equivalent to a cent in purchasing power. A rose by any other name...

SUGAR CANE 5 DOLLARS BANK OF GUYANA
GUYANA (ONE PEOPLE ONE NATION ONE DESTINY) 1996
One of the few copper coins I have seen with a reeded edge, not pictured.Again the reeded edge is placed on high denomination to avoid fraud and counterfeiting.

Guyanese coins are among my favorite because they are unexpected in design. The small size and neat patterns make them very unique. 

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 5 Dollars / Guyana

Mintage: Unknown
Metal: Copper Plated Steel

It is nickel plated steel and has a Canadian value of about $0.35 in very-fine.

The U.S. value is the same as Canada.
