Senkant Kob: Once upon a time, this was equivalent to a dime in the United States (Haiti Money - Haitian currency)

Here is a photo of an old 1975 Haitian coin, 50 centimes or Senkant Kob in Creole, this is half or 1 gourde. Back in those days, One US dollar was worth 5 Gourdes.

Once upon a time, this was equivalent to a dime in the United States. Nowadays, no such coin exists in Haiti, the smallest coin in circulation is the 5 gourdes. You may find one gourde but you can't buy anything with it, not even a candy, something that sekant kob could buy 10 of back in the days.

On the coin is written: Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite... Augmentons La Production Alimentaire (Freedom, Equality, Fraternity ... Let's increase Food Production)

Haitian Creole: Nan tan lontan, ti nèg te ka achte 10 bonbon lanmidon ak lajan sa a. oswa w te ka fè chwa 10 tito, 2 bout kann anana, 10 dous lèt, yon citronade, 5 biswit a manba, 10 wayal (kasav ak manba) osinon yon boutey kola. Konye a yon grenn mant vann 10 goud.
