El Salvador 25 Centavos 1914
This design appears only on the 1914 25 centavos from El Salvador. Other, less valuable, designs of El Salvador 25 centavos appear on this CoinQuest page.
This coin, with its triangle, volcano, and flag design, is made of 0.168 troy ounces of silver, and the silver gives it a base value (BV) which it can never go under. To find the BV, use a web site such as kitco.com to look up the current price of silver (it changes every day) and then multiply by 0.168. Today's silver price is about $32 US dollars per troy ounce, so the base value is 0.168 x 32 = $5.37. Even a beat-up, worn coin would be worth this much.
For coins that look nice, here are some typical catalog values:
worn: $10 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $12
well preserved: $25
fully uncirculated: $60
Use our Important Terminology page to properly evaluate your coin based on these catalog values.
