1987 Dominican Republic 25 Centavos


This coins is a 25 centavos featuring the Mirabal sisters who fought against the dictatorship in the Dominican Republic. They were killed by the regime who tried to make it look like an accident. The deaths of the sisters shocked and outraged the public and would add to the growing calls to end the dictatorship.

The Mirabal sisters have been honored many times for their sacrifice. Their husbands were incarcerated and family persecuted for years but eventually the change they wanted came to pass. They are also on the 200 pesos bill. This 25 centavos coin was one of two commemorative coins made in 1986 and 1987.
