Spain 5 and 10 Centimos  1940 to 1953
Spain 5 and 10 Centimos 1940 to 1953

Well that's a neat coin, isn't it? And it's made out of aluminum.

Spain issued these armored rider, rearing horse, crowned shield, pillar-flanked eagle coins from 1940 to 1953. They are pretty unusual and collectors like them. Here are typical catalog values:

5 CENTIMOS
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $2
well preserved: $4
fully uncirculated: $12
5 centimos dated 1940 are uncommon in higher grades and catalog at $5 average circulated, $60 fully uncirculated
5 centimos dated 1953 are scarce and catalog at $30 average circulated, $70 fully uncirculated

10 CENTIMOS
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $4
fully uncirculated: $8
10 centimos dated 1940 are uncommon in higher grades and catalog at $4 average circulated, $50 fully uncirculated
10 centimos dated 1941 are less common in higher grades and catalog at $2 average circulated, $20 fully uncirculated

Now, further, here is about the 10 centimos coins something that will get those *collector juices* flowing. Look very closely at the word PLUS on the left banner on the eagle side. Does it say PLUS or PLVS? I hope it says PLVS, because PLVS coins are worth more than the common PLUS coins. Here are catalog values for 10 centimos PLVS coins that are dated 1940 and 1941:

10 CENTIMOS PLVS INSTEAD OF PLUS:
worn: $8
average circulated: $20
well preserved: $45
fully uncirculated: $100
1941 PLVS coins are even scarcer - multiply the above values by 2

Requester description: 1940 Side with denomination: an eagle spreading its wings around an escutcheon. Behind the eagle's head is an ornate banner reading 'UNA GRAN-DE LIBRE'. The other side has a soldier, carrying a lance, riding on a horse towards the right, with 'ESPAŅA' and a horizontal bar below the horse, above the date.
