This spoon has a silver 'coffee bean' finial and the bowl is
of a 50 (cent) centima silver coin dated 1895.
Costa Rica started issuing silver coins in 1850 and continued through
1896. This coin dated 1895 was therefore the last of this
peso minted. It was replaced at par value by the Colon in 1896.
