Republic Honduras Monetary unit is the lempira which consists from 100 centavo. In the cash circulation there are coins in nominal value 5, 10, 20 and 50 centavo.

The Lempira in Honduras has been entered in 1931, having replaced peso face value. In the late eighties, the exchange rate made 2 lempiras to US dollar (the coin 20 centavo was called a dime as it cost the same as 10 cents of the USA). As of 5 Martha of 2010, the lempira was quoted under the relation 18,925 to 1 US dollar.

In 1931 coins in nominal value 5, 20 both 50 centavo and 1 lempira have been manufactured. Coins 1, 2 and 10 centavo were entered into the circulation in 1935, 1939 and 1932, accordingly. Silver coins in 1 lempira have terminated to manufacture in 1937, and at other silver coins (20 and 50 centavo) the material has been replaced with a Copper-Nickel in 1967. Now coins 1 and 2 centavo are not manufactured, the coin 5 centavo also is removed from the circulation and all prices are approximated to the proximate 10 centavo.
