Yo, Lynn. Nice catch. Can't you envision that condor soaring high above those majestic Chilean mountains?

The condor-on-rock pattern appears on 5, 10, 20, and 40 centavos coins from Chile, as well as the 1 and 2 pesos. Most of these coins carry low value, even though some coins with certain dates are made of silver. The silver purity, however, is not high, ranging from 40 to 50 percent pure. We list the predominant values for each denomination and call out some special cases.

Comments

The coin of 'Un peso' (writed, not in number like '1 peso') from 1932 are made of silver 0.4 - Nicolás
Thanks, Nicolás. Your comment caused us to re-visit this page and we found several shortcomings, which are now fixed. Several of the coins contain silver, but it is low-purity silver and there is not much effect on value. For the few coins that contain more than 0.2 troy ounces, we've added annotation about that. - CoinQuest (Paul)
