Costa Rica 5 Colones

Costa Rica is a country in Central America, bordered by Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the southeast, the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the Caribbean Sea to the east.

Costa Rica, which means “Rich Coast”.

Here is a 5 Colones added to my collection in June 2012 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Front of the beautiful note has Rafael Yglesias Castro at left, flowers at right. Rafael Anselmo José Yglesias Castro served as President of Costa Rica for two consecutive periods from 1894 to 1902.

Back is a very colorful green on multicolored under-print with a National Theater scene. There is no watermark or security thread, however, the paper has colored threads. Printer is Thomas De La Rue mentioned at the back. This banknote is Pick # 236d and is dated 4 October 1989.
