Peru 5, 10, and 20 Centavos 1918 to 1965
Peru minted these coins in 5, 10, and 20 centavos denominations. Some dates are brass, other dates are copper-nickel. The pattern with the portrait obverse and leafy reverse appears on all denominations and compositions.
With a few exceptions explained later on this page, all these coins carry low value. The earlier dates are worth a tad more than later dates, but the general values that apply to all coins are:
5, 10, AND 20 CENTAVOS
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: $1
fully uncirculated: $8
*Better Date* coins are called out below. A few dates have mint marked versions, as shown in our secondary picture. The values that appear in the list below are for coins in well preserved condition. Average circulated coins will be worth about one-half these values.
1951 no AFP (*see below): $15
*Some coins have a small, almost microscopic, three-letter set of initials 'AFP' at the very bottom of the woman's neck. In all cases except one, the presence or absence of AFP has no effect on value. A 1951 10 centavos without the AFP is unusual and commands higher value.
All the values on this page are catalog values which must be adjusted in accordance with our Important Terminology page.
