Costa Rica 50 Colones 1970
This is a modern coin produced in small quantities from 0.216 troy ounces of gold. It carries a value equal to its weight in gold, plus a few dollars for rarity.
At today's gold price ($1270 US dollars per troy ounce, look it up at kitco.com, it changes every day), the gold value is 0.216 x 1615 = $275 US dollars. A collector might pay $20 or so above this amount.
A small amount of coins bear a counter mark of '1AR' just above a fineness statement of '.900' at the bottom of the reverse. These coins are scarce and catalog at $120 above the current gold value when in fully uncirculated condition.
