Ecuador 2, 2 1/2, 5, 10, 20, and 50 Centavos 1909 to 1985

All recent Ecuadoran coins have the eagle/flags/shield coat of arms on one side of the coin. The other side may have the head of a man, or it may simply state the denomination, such as '5 centavos.' This page applies to non-copper coins with the denomination; they are all made from nickel alloys, although they sometimes take on a golden tone (as in our picture). For the coins with the man's head, click to this CoinQuest link.
