    Republic of Guatemala is rather small country in Central America. It has an area 108889 sq.km. and population about 14500000. Guatemala has an own currency - quetzal. One quetzal = 100 centavos. 1 auetzal = 13 cents of USA.
    A coins of Guatemala are very nice. I would like to present my collection.

    Nice. All my coins from Guatemala are from 1973 when I spent the month of December 1973 in the country as a 10 year old. All my coins were gotten from circulation. Here is one. DSCN0802~2.JPG DSCN0801~2.JPG

    The quetzal is actually the national bird of Guatemala. Its very colorful and they named their currency after it. As the OP shows above, the quetzal is on the majority of Guatemalan money.

    Only one I have photographed:
    Guatemala, 8 Reales, cob, 1739
    Probably holed for carrying on a string long ago, and then someone more modern turned it into a key fob. Cob Fob Guatemala 8 Reales 1739 copy.jpg
