Panama 2 1/2 and 5 Centesimos  1907 to 1985
Panama 2 1/2 and 5 Centesimos 1907 to 1985

Several coin designs were issued by Panama between 1907 and 1985. This page applies to ones that compare to our picture, with a large denomination value (2 1/2 or 5) on one side and a flag-draped coat-of-arms on the other.

Some of the older coins are tough to find in nice condition. Most I have seen have been pretty well beat up. If yours is in average circulated condition without spots, stains, or cleanings, you are doing well. More modern coins are plentiful and worth very little.

Here are typical catalog values.

2 1/2 CENTESIMOS 1907 to 1918
worn: $2 US dollars
average circulated: $10
well preserved: $25
fully uncirculated: $100

5 CENTESIMOS 1929 to 1932
worn: $3 US dollars
average circulated: $10
well preserved: $30
fully uncirculated: $110

5 CENTESIMOS 1961 to 1985
worn: less than $1 US dollar
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: $2
fully uncirculated: $4

These are catalog values. Use our Important Terminology link to find out what this means.
