Bolivia 5, 10, 20, 50 Centavos 1893 to 1942

Bolivia, officially known as the Plurinational State of Bolivia, is a landlocked country located in western-central South America. This country was colonized by the Spanish conquistadors and from 1825 it is a democratic republic that is divided into nine Departments (Departamentos). On the obverse of the coin you can see 9 stars, which symbolize the nine departments. Within the border, the silver mountain Potosí is recognized by its mine entrance, with a sun rising above it and with an alpaca standing next to a palm tree and some wheat. This is basically the coat of arms of Bolivia.
