Colombia 1902 5 centavos rev DSLR.jpg

This billon five centavos was struck in Philadelphia for Colombia in 1902 only during the civil war of 1899-1903. (The chaos of that civil war enabled the United States to engineer Panamanian independence.) It was the last five centavo coin to contain any silver and is common. Do not confuse it with the rare copper-nickel issue (KM 184) from Waterbury, also dated 1902.

Recorded mintage: 400,000.

Specification: 1.25 g, .666 fine silver, .026 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: KM 191.
