After finding of independence of Cabo Verde in 1977, coins of denomination in 20 and 50 centavo, 1 2 1/2, 10, 20 and 50 escudos have been manufactured. Coins of centavo were manufactured from aluminium, 1 and 2 1/2 escudo from nickel-bronze of an alloy, a coin of the maximum nominal values from a Copper-Nickel. Coins acting in the presents time are entered into the circulation in 1994: 1 escudo from a steel the covered brass, 5 escudos from a copper-plated steel, 10, 20 and 50 escudos from a Nickel-plated steel, and also bimetallic, decagonal 100 escudos.
