October 16, 2012 – The Banco de la República de Colombia has issued a new and extended family of coins. The new coins are lighter and, in most cases, smaller than their predecessors – making them cheaper to produce, according to the Bank, as well as cheaper and easier to manage in circulation. Moreover, they have a range of new security features, along with intricate design and engraving, to make counterfeiting more difficult.
There is a consistent design theme through all five coins in the new series of native Colombian fauna and flora, which is intended to reflect the country’s biodiversity. The coins also feature images of water, which is seen as essential to the country’s ecological heritage.
The coins were designed by the Colombian artists Johana Calle and José Antonio Suarez.
