Set of 2 coins in the denomination of 25 and 5 colones issued in 1995 and 1989 respectively by the Central Bank of Costa Rica (Banco Central de Costa Rica). The colon (plural: colones) has been the national currency of Costa Rica since 1896, its name taken from the Spanish spelling of explorer Christopher Columbus: Cristobal Colon.

The front of the 25 colones coin features the national coat-of-arms, designed in 1848 with an ornate medallion shape that includes three volcanoes, two oceans with a ship on each, a sun on the horizon, and seven stars denoting the provinces of the republic. Forming part of the medallion's frame are beads representing coffee, one of the country's best-known crops, and text that reads "America Central" and "Republica de Costa Rica." The symbol is surrounded by "Republica de Costa Rica" and date of issue. On the reverse is the value, including in braille, surmounting 2 coffee branches and the initials of the central bank.

The front of the 5 colones coin also features the coat-of-arms and the date of issue, along with the words "Costa Rica," all framed in a heptagonal (7-sided) border. On the reverse is the value, including in braille, highlighted by a wavy ribbon graphic, along with 2 coffee branches and the initials of the central bank.

25 colones coin: round shape with 4 smooth and 4 reeded segments on the edge, 1" DIA (25.5 mm).

5 colones coin: round shape with reeded edge, 1 DIA (25 mm).

Good condition, surface wear on both.
