I have coin that looks like a Quarter but its from Panama. How much is it worth?


The coin is actually worth the same as a US Quarter Dollar. Panama has a Currency Agreement with the US that dates back to 1904 that allows Panama to use the US Dollar as their currency of legal tender. Not the inability to have a stable economy as another user quoted in his or her comment.

Panama can issue it's own currency whenever they feel like it, or they can also adopt other currencies like the Euro.

The agreement also specifies the amount of coins that Panama can mint. Unlike other countries that use US bills and coins as their currency, Panama is allowed to print or mint their own at the same value, size and weight as US bills and coins. However Panama only mints coins, and uses US dollar bills for paper currency.

My advice, either keep it as a souvenir or use it at a vending machine.


I am thinking of becoming a newspaper carrier for coin-operated racks. How much can I expect to make?

I am thinking of becoming a newspaper carrier for coin-operated racks. How much can I expect to make? I live in Panama City, FL. Thanks!

Difficult question to answer, because it would depend on how many racks you would service and how many papers you distributed.

I agree with the first post, that it is not a lucrative venture, however you would make some money.

I have a couple really old coins too, like from 1897, that I'd like to find the value on. Closest thing I've been able to come up with so far is checking the going rate on ebay.


I have quite a few collectible items from my uncle who has passed away.?

most of the collectible items are coins from Panama, but there are some jewlry items from South America. How do I find collectors?

you will find a lot on Ebay......... local papers and on collectors sites on the computer................


Is there any online website where you can find out who much a coin is worth.?

I found some money from panama when I was helping my daughter count the money in her piggy bank.

Trying to price coins online is like trying to diagnose an illness online -- almost impossible.

The first question I have for you is if the money you found is paper bills or coins. I'm assuming that you found coins, if they're from a piggy bank. The odds are good that what you've found is simply leftover change from someone's trip abroad, and therefore not worth anything. The only time foreign coins are of any value, generally speaking, is if they're made of gold or silver, or proof coins.

If you've got bills, the odds are good that they've been folded and/or creased and torn to fit into the piggy bank, greatly reducing what little value they might have had.

Again, it's probably just leftover change from someone's trip. They're just fun things to have -- nothing of value.

If you do think that some of them may be gold or silver, email me and I can look them up for you.


1976 Five Hundred Balboa Gold Coin?

How much is a 1976 Five Hundred Balboa Gold Coin of the Republic of Panama worth? It contains 41.7 grams of 900/1000 fine gold. Is it worth anything beyond the value of its gold?

The whole coin weighs 41.7 g and has actual gold weight of 1.2067 oz . I usually deal with older coins, so my book is from 2001 on this. Then it booked for $526.00 which is kind of telling me, it booked for a little more than it's gold value. I doubt that has changed. Looks like they minted 2,169 of them in proof. There are 2 rare varieties of this coin, both having to do with the type of finish. One is a matte finish they struck 10 and one with a special uncirculated finish, they struck 160. The coins were struck by the Franklin Mint here in the USA.
