Costa Rica 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, and 500 Colones 1995 to Date
These are modern coins made of non-precious metal. Some are made of brass, some of aluminum, and some of brass-plated steel. All are worth face value. Uncirculated examples may sell on eBay for a few US dollars.
There is a special 'thin numerals' version of the 2003 500 colones that is worth substantial money. A page about these coins appears on ColNect.com.
