Venezuela 2 1/2 Centavos, and 5, and 12 1/2 Centimos  1876 to 1938
Venezuela 2 1/2 Centavos, and 5, and 12 1/2 Centimos 1876 to 1938

Neat coin, David. Venezuela started minting these copper-nickel coins with the curvy shield, horse, grain, swords, and flags in 1876. The denominations are 2 1/2 centavos, and 5, and 12 1/2 centimos. Monetary reform happened in 1876, when 100 centavos were equal to 1 venezuarlio, and again in 1896, when 100 centimos equaled 1 Bolivar.

As you would expect, value goes up with earlier dates and better condition. The listings below give approximate catalog values. These must be converted to actual buy and sell values using our Important Terminology page.
