Venezuela 1 Venezolano 1876
Venezuela, officially called the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, is a country on the northern coast of South America. During his lifetime, Simon Bolivar led Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, and Venezuela to independence from Spain. He helped lay the democratic foundations of much of Hispanic America. Most of these countries celebrate Bolivar on their coinage. The catalog values for this type of coin go like this:

Requester description: 1876 On the front is the portrait of Bolivar. The portrait looks used. On the back the letters around the edge are legible, however inside the ribbon like structure the writings arent clear. They are erased on some spots.
