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...
