    US Twenty Centavos

    Dug this in a yard the other day. Not valuable or rare, but before I found it I'd never personally seen one. I had to look it up to find out exactly what it was.

    "The Philippines was ceded to the United States as part of the settlement between Spain and the United States at the end of the Spanish-American War in 1898. A self-governing commonwealth was established in 1935. The U.S. granted the Republic of The Philippines full independence on July 4, 1946.

    During the United States administration, Congress was responsible for issuing coinage. The first U.S./Philippine coins were minted in 1903 in Philadelphia and San Francisco and bear both the Identities of the United States and "Filipinas" (Spanish for The Philippines). During the commonwealth period, coinage was issued primarily at the Manila Mint ("M" mint mark). During the Japanese Occupation no Philippine coinage was issued. In 1944 and 1945 coins were only struck at the Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco Mints."

    That's a great find. Congrats!

    Can you tell me where you found the info you cite? I found an 1884 Argentinian Dos Centavos and I'm trying to see if it was part of a US mint effort, or just somehow wound up in the states another way.

    Joe,
    It might be fun to see if anyone who lived in that home during WW II may actually have been in the Phil. during that time.
    Returning it might be a memorable occasion for both of you.

    I had some I brought home with me in 1956, 10 and 20 centavos, got them in change, but have no idea where they might be now. Good find, silver is silver.
    Due to the high price of ammunition there will be no warning shot.
