    Rocky in my change today

    Received a Balboa in my change today. The Balboa is from Panama and the exchange rate is 1:1 so only worth a quarter. Date of the Balboa is 1980, still nothing special just a little different.

    15 minutes away from the Panamanian border? They are Panamanian, not Mexican. The ones that have a silver edge are 90% or 40% silver.
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    It is,. when it is a whole Balboa. This one is a 1/4 balboa.

    Beans,

    You mean you got a Spanish conquistador in change:

    different for sure, since you can't detect the modern panamian coins edge checking, I am sure we all pass through quite a lot of them...
