Bolivia 100, 250, and 500 Pesos Bolivianos - 150th Anniversary of Independence 1975

The peso boliviano, divided into 100 centavos, was the currency of Bolivia from January 1, 1963 until December 31, 1985. These coins, 100, 250, and 500 pesos bolivianos, on the obverse show two busts, one is the president at that time, Hugo Banzer Suares, and second is Simon Bolivar, leader of the independence movement throughout Latin America. Hugo Banzer Suares was president in two periods 1971-1978 by coup and 1997-2001 for elections.

The reverse legend 'Sesquicentennial' and both sides of the national coat, the years 1825 (year of the independence of Bolivia) to 1975 commemorates the anniversary of 150 years of independence. The design is common to the 100, 250, and 500 pesos bolivianos coins.

These coins are made of silver, and their value will be silver value plus added collector premium. First we discuss silver value, then collector premium.

100 pesos bolivianos: 0.3000 troy ounces of silver
250 pesos bolivianos: 0.4499 ounces silver
500 pesos bolivianos: 0.6599 ounces silver

To find the base value of your 100 pesos bolivianos silver coin, multiply the ounces of silver it contains by the current spot value of silver found at web sites like kitco.com. For instance, if you have a 100 pesos bolivianos with 0.3000 troy ounces of silver and the current price of silver is $17.79 US dollars per troy ounce, the base value of your coin will be 0.3000 x 17.79 = $5.33. The value of silver changes every day, so look it up.

Some coins carry values greater than their silver value. The added value is called collector premium. Here are some approximate collector premiums for these coins.
