Honduras 1 and 2 Centavo  1881 to 1920
Honduras 1 and 2 Centavo 1881 to 1920

Honduras, between Guatemala and Nicaragua in Central America, issued several small-denomination copper coins from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. This page applies only to 1 and 2 centavo coins with the pattern shown: an encircled triangle on one side and a leafy wreath on the other. There are several patterns which look similar, but this page does not apply to those coins.

Catalog values are very respectable for these coins. Here is a summary.

1 CENTAVO
worn: $10 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $30
well preserved: $75
fully uncirculated: $150
1 centavo coins dated 1889 and 1910 are somewhat more rare, double these values
1 centavo coins dated 1911 with CENTAVOS instead of CENTAVO quite rare a catalog at $300 in average circulated condition

2 CENTAVOS
worn: $2 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $12
well preserved: $45
fully uncirculated: $90
2 centavos coins dated 1911 are somewhat more rare, double these values
2 centavos coins dated 1912 with CENTAVO instead of CENTAVOS are slightly more rare, multiply these values by 1.5
2 centavos coins dated 1913 are somewhat more common, divide these values by two
