Ecuador 1/2, 1, and 2 Decimos 1884 to 1916

Decimal coinage in Ecuador has some neat denominations. Ten centavos make one decimo, ten decimos make one sucre. and 25 sucres make one condor. This page applies to decimo coinage between 1884 and 1916 that look like the picture at the left. All coins are made of 90 percent pure silver.

1/2 DECIMO, G.1.25, 14 mm diameter, 0.036 troy ounces silver
1 DECIMO, G.2.5, 16 mm diameter, 0.072 ounces silver
2 DECIMOS, G.5, 2.3 mm diameter, 0.145 ounces silver

Some of these coins command respectable collector values.
