This type was struck in Guatemala the one year only. It represents another attempt to introduce decimal currency, which was not fully implemented until 1912. Five and ten centavos of similar design were issued in 1881. None were successful and were superseded bythe seated liberty type (KM 205.1).

Recorded mintage: unknown but rare.

Specification: 6.25 g, .835 fine silver.
