Uruguay 20 Centesimos (with Wheat)  1930 to 1954
Uruguay 20 Centesimos (with Wheat) 1930 to 1954

Uruguay issued three silver 20 centesimos coins with wheat sprays on the reverse. There are different patterns on the obverse ('heads' side). The earliest dates 1930 and the latest 1954:

20 CENTESIMOS 1930: Seated figure obverse, 0.129 troy ounces silver
20 CENTESIMOS 1942: Female liberty obverse, 0.069 troy ounces silver
20 CENTESIMOS 1954: Male head Artigas obverse, 0.069 troy ounces silver

To figure value, first compute the base value (BV) of the silver. For instance, if you have a 1942 coin and silver is selling at $15 US dollars per troy ounce (look it up at kitco.com), then BV = 0.069 x 15 = $1 US dollar.

20 CENTESIMOS 1930:
worn: BV
average circulated: BV + $4
well preserved: BV + $10
fully uncirculated: BV + $25

20 CENTESIMOS 1942 AND 1954:
worn: BV
average circulated: BV + $1
well preserved: BV + $3
fully uncirculated: BV + $5

Coin: 20747 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
