Costa Rica 5, 10, 25, 50 Centimos, and 1, 2 Colones 1920 to 1993
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.
