Ecuador, 10 centavos, 2000

It’s a small one today….

Ecuador, 10 centavos, 2000 (KM #106)

This is a companion coin to the 50 centavos coin featured on January 2nd. It is sized like a US dime, and is worth a US dime, but it’s made of steel. I don’t know what the mintage is, but I have a whole bunch of these already.

The man depicted on the obverse, Eugenio Espejo, was an 18th century scientist, writer, and lawyer who sparked the movement toward Ecuadorian independence from Spain, the Thomas Paine of his land. But like Ben Franklin, he also made strides in many other endeavors, including economics and microbiology.
