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.
