Description

The Guatemalan Quetzal is the official currency in Guatemala and was named in honor of the national bird “resplendent quetzal”. It was introduced in 1925, replacing the peso. The first coins were issued in denominations of 1, 5 and 10 centavos, ¼, ½, and 1 quetzal. In 1932 were added ½ and 2 centavos coins followed by 1 quetzal in 1998. However, the ½ and 1 quetzal notes were introduced to replace equivalent notes at the end of the 1990s.

The 25 Centavos coin front design features the National Coat of Arms (composed of the national bird of Guatemala, the Quetzal, a scroll with the date on which Central America became independent from Spain, on September 15, 1821; two crossed rifles, with bayonets, two crossed swords and a laurel wreath). The reverse coin design has a representation of the Guatemalan indigenous woman and the denomination. This coin is part of the 2012 – 2017 series, its rim is fluted, and its color is silver.
