Paraguay 1953.jpg


Scalloped coins are reasonably common, but one of these from Paraguay also carries an unusual denomination: 15 Centimos. It is dated 1953. Are there any other 15 centimos coin in the world?

My initial thought was Cuba, given its status as a satellite of the Soviet bloc, which is well known for its liking of the 15-denomination. However, I can't find a 15c coin of Cuba, but it did issue a 15 pesos in gold for three years (1988-90, KM212).

Yes, the USSR liked their 15 kopeck coins - has Russia ended this tradition? And the Bahamas has a circulating 15 cent coin. That's all the "15"s I know about.

Yes, the Russian 15 kopeek coin ended with the Soviet Union. Romania had a 15 bani coin, too, also now gone. I believe the Bahamas 15c coin is also now discontinued. My KM only gives issues up to 1992.

Sort of, yes. Then again, both Australia and Canada issue $15 coins. One of those Canadian thingies is even scalloped. Just do not expect them to circulate. :)
