Colombia 10 and 20 Centavos  1897
Colombia 10 and 20 Centavos 1897

Nice coin, Jon. Miss Liberty (Libertad) is on the front and the coat of arms of Colombia (with a condor) is on the back. These coins are made of 66.6 percent pure silver. They contain:

10 (DIEZ) CENTAVOS: 0.054 troy ounces silver
20 (VEINTE) CENTAVOS: 0.107 troy ounces silver

These coins can never be worth less than their silver content, so even a totally smashed coin (scratched, stained, cleaned, mutilated) is worth its weight in silver. But, collectors pay premiums for nice looking specimens:

10 CENTAVOS
worn: $3 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $4
well preserved: $7
fully uncirculated: $12

20 CENTAVOS
worn: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $8
well preserved: $12
fully uncirculated: $22

As always on CoinQuest, and in most catalogs and coin web sites, the prices above a catalog prices. Actual buy and sell prices are lower. Be sure to read our Important Terminology page to learn how to estimate actual price from catalog price.
