1972 Nicaragua 25 Centavos

Have a Nicaragua coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Yet another one and only coin from my vault. I always expect to have more Central and South American coins than I actually do. Again it is the proximity and the constant media about these countries that leads me to think I must have a ton of their coins.


On the obverse has REPUBLICA DE NICARAGUA ☆ 1972 ☆ around Francisco Hernández de Córdoba the guy they named their money after.

Edge has normal reeding.

The reverse EN DIOS CONFIAMOS 25 CENTAVOS DE CORDOBA which means IN GOD WE TRUST 25 CENTS OF CORDOBA . The design remained for a long time until they started making larger value coins and eventually demonetized these coins. (Now this time I am 99.99% certain these are no longer legal tender.)

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 25 Cents / Nicaragua
Year: 1972
Mintage: 4,000,000
Metal: Copper-Nickel
Value: $0.10 in Very-Fine

I would prefer directly from the Nicaraguan government, but I will take that nice site.
