Banknotes and coins Collection

The Banknotes and Coins Collection of the Central Reserve Bank of El Salvador has 183 pieces; some of them was issued in late XIX century and in first decades of XX century, before the Central Reserve Bank was founded in 1934.     In those years, other banks as Banco Internacional, Banco Occidental and Banco Agricola Comercial had the right of issue.   

The Collection has pieces of the first family of banknotes issued in 1934, in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 25 and 100 colones.    Other denominations, as 2 and 50 colones were added to this family lately.    

In 1997, the second family of banknotes was issued by the Central Bank, eliminating 1 and 2 colones bills, and minting a one colon coin instead the bill, because the coins last longer.   Also, a bill of 200 colones was added to this family.
