Costa Rica 5, 10, 25, 50 Centimos, and 1, 2 Colones 1920 to 1993 | 2 costa rica 5 10 50 1 25 colones wreath central bccr ship bncr america colon mountain steel iron aluminum Costa Rica changed its money system in 1920. The preponderance of coins minted since then all have the same pattern of an ornate crest with mountains and sailing ships. The individual denominations, 5, 10, 25, and 50 centimos and 1 and 2 colones (there are 100 centimos in a colon) appear on the reverse side of the coin.

Just about all these coins carry very low collector value. They are minted in various metals, including brass, bronze, aluminum, copper-nickel, and stainless steel.

The list below shows the coins that are worth more than $3 US dollars. All other coins from 1920 to 1993 are worth less than $3.
