The Republic of Nicaragua is the Spanish-speaking country in Central America. The state became independent from Spanish Empire in 1821, but still has the traces of its colonial past. Nicaragua shares with most of other former Spanish colonies some distinct features, such as Catholic religion, Spanish language, mixed traditions and population of mixed ancestry called Mestizo. Mestizos in Nicaragua nowadays form the largest ethnic group (up to 70%); they are of indigenous, European and African descent. The culture of the country has various influences, including European and Amerindian particularly. The official paper currency of the state is cordoba, while the legal tender Nicaraguan coins are called centavos. The commemorative coins of Nicaragua are issued for collecting also.
Nicaragua is far from prosperity, especially comparing to other countries of the region. Almost half of the population lives below the poverty line. The salaries in Nicaragua are the lowest not only in Americas, but in the whole world. Many Nicaraguans left the country for a better life, mostly for the USA, Mexico and Costa Rica. The largest part of Nicaraguan income is coffee growing. The largest international food companies buy coffee beans in Nicaragua. Special collectable coins of Nicaragua are issued from time to time and may have various subjects. Neither commemorative Nicaraguan coins, nor circulated ones are common in the coin collections, due to distant location of the country. Being quite exotic, coins of Nicaragua are desirable pieces for collectors, whether they’re precious or not. Some rare coins of Nicaragua are available for ordering online via Coinsberg.com. Shipping is free for all Nicaraguan coins, ordered online.
Tourism makes an important contribution to country’s economy as well. The intricate history, incredible nature and distinct culture of Nicaragua attract a number of tourists annually. The country offers a great variety of activities to try on vacations. One can go hiking, climbing volcanoes, camping, boating, sightseeing, swimming and kayaking in Nicaragua. Tourists also enjoy trying national cuisine of Nicaragua, which is quite exotic for western culture. Nicaragua still has the massive tropical forests on its territory, and thus the biodiversity of the land are outstanding too.
