Costa Rica 5, 10, and 50 Centimos and 5, 10, and 50 Centavos 1902 to 1919

These collectible coins from Costa Rica come in different denominations and compositions, but they all look like our picture and have the national coat of arms (with mountains and stars) on the front and a wreath on the back. Some of these coins are rare. Also, when you check current auction prices against the modern catalogs, these coins generally sell stronger, at higher prices, than the catalogs indicate.
