El Salvador 1, 3, 5, 10, 25, and 50 Centavos 1889 to Date | 5 salvador 10 50 1 25 3 el wreath man nickel king centavo lel garland reif wreathed wreth rief reef El Salvador's 1 centavo coin has not changed much over the years. The design remains the same, but the minting metal is different from time to time. In addition, 3, 5, 10, 25, and 50 centavos denominations have also appeared with essentially the same design except, of course, for the numeral on the back.

Note: there are El Salvadoran coins that do not use the design in our picture. This page applies only to coins with the male portrait on one side and the wreathed denomination on the other side.

These coins have been minted in copper-nickel, bronze, brass, copper-zinc, clad steel, and silver. Values for coins dated after 1939 are generally low, except for a few special cases outlined below. Earlier dates are more valuable, also shown belwo. Typical catalog values run like this:

BTW, Mike, our catalogs do not show an El Salvador 1 centavo with a 1911 date. Do you mean, perhaps, another coin? If so, re-submit with a more thorough description.
