Argentina 1993 5 Centavo

This Argentine Five Centavo coin features a sunburst obverse and a rather plain reverse. The legend around the sunburst reads “Republica Argentina En Union Y Libertad”. The reverse has a large 5, with the word “centavos” below it, and the date at the bottom of the coin.

Other details: I bought this coin shortly after listening to the Beatle’s Song “Sun King”, which is an odd song for them. It has a mix of English, Spanish, and Italian. Did you know that it’s gibberish? The translation is something like “When for much my love with happy heart, Great paparazzi my love Na-Na-Na, How much cake and eat it too carousel.”

Estimated Value: $0.10-$0.25 in EF condition (like this piece)
