This type was struck for Guatemala by the Royal Mint in London 1932-39 and again 1946-49. In 1949, the denomination was redesigned to place the bust of Fray Bartolome de las Casas on the obverse, which design is still in service (KM 254, KM 259, KM260, KM 265, KM 273, KM 275, KM 282). The accompanying half centavo and two centavos were much less popular and were soon discontinued.

Recorded mintage: 1,000,000.

Specification: brass.

Catalog reference: KM 249.
