Honduras: Possible introduction of 3 new coins
« on: September 30, 2017, 08:03:52 PM »
During the last few months the Central Bank of Honduras has researched the possibility to change the 1,2 and 5 Lempira notes into coins. The results of this research will be released in October.

Although coins are currently not very popular in the country, such introduction would mean huge cuts in costs. Notes only circulate for less than 2 years after which they have to be replaced while coins can remain in circulation for 20 years.

Alongside the introduction of the new 1, 2 and 5 lempiras coins, it seems that new centavos coins can be introduced, anyway, they do not specified what values (In my opinion, no values under 20 centavos will be issued):

The Banco Central de Honduras will unveiled the results of the study by the end of October with the final decision, but everybody there know that the study will approve the minting of those new coins.

1 Lempira is currently around to 4 euro cents.
