Uruguay is located on the Atlantic coast of South America between Argentina and Brazil, and bordered on the west by Paraguay. The sun with rays is one of their popular coin patterns and it appears on several different denominations over several years. This page outlines approximate catalog values for centesimo coins with the sun and rays pattern. Earlier coins are minted in copper, later in copper-nickel, as shown below. The values apply to all dates and mint marks, unless noted.

Requester description: 1924 (obverse) 'Republica Oriental Del Uruguay 1924' around the edge, Sun in center with rays spreading out in all directions. (reverse) A wreath around the edge, in center '5 Centesimos'.... Plus, inbetween the word 'Centesimos' and the wreath, there is a small mark that is similar to a mint mark.
