This coin shows a fairly standard South American representation of Liberty. She is wearing an oddly bent cap, and has loose tangles of hair sticking out from under the headpiece. The legend reads “Republica Argentina” and the date is at 6 o’clock on the obverse.
The reverse has a wreath with the legend “20 Centavos” inside. No surprises there – although I do think the outlining of the numbers is well done and notable. I’d grade this coin somewhere between F12 and VF25 (the reverse is in better shape than the obverse).
Identification code: KM-11
Mint Mark: n/a
Country of origin: Argentina (although the US mint may have provided planchets, starting in 1919).
Composition: Copper Nickel
Other details: What do you want? A soliloquy on the beauty of Argentina?
Estimated value: about $0.25. This isn’t a particularly rare or noteworthy coin – just something that I thought interesting in a junk bin.
