Argentina 5, 10, 20, and 50 Centavos (Jose de San Martin) 1950 to 1956
José Francisco de San Martín (1778 to 1850) was an Argentine general and the prime leader of the southern part of South America's successful struggle for independence from the Spanish Empire. He is depicted on these coins from Argentina.
All these coins, 5, 10, 20, and 50 centavos, are made of non-precious metal. As such, they have no intrinsic value (like they would if made of silver), so the only source of value is collector demand. The hundreds of millions of coins minted make supply high and demand low, and the result is low price:
5, 10, 20, 50 CENTAVOS
worn: less thand $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: less than $1
fully uncirculated: $3
