Portugal 1, 2, and 5 Centavos 1917 to 1922

The Five Quinas or five escutcheons of the national shield are proudly displayed on early 1, 2, and 5 centavos coins of Portugal. The other side simply gives the denomination and date.

1 CENTAVO: 1917 to 1921 bronze
2 CENTAVOS: 1918 iron
2 CENTAVOS: 1918 to 1921 bronze
5 CENTAVOS: 1920 to 1922 bronze

Except for a few special cases, values of these coins are low.

1 AND 2 CENTAVOS IN BRONZE
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $3
fully uncirculated: $7

5 CENTAVOS IN BRONZE
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value

Here are the exceptional coins in the series. Hope you have one!

1 CENTAVO coins dated 1921 are rare, cataloging at $50 in well preserved condition
2 CENTAVOS in iron are very rare, starting at $70 US dollars worn and rising to $800 fully uncirculated

The iron coin in our secondary picture to the right is in excellent condition. It sold for $578 in a 2007 auction by Westfalische, and CoinQuest thanks them for use of their coin photo.
