The centesimo coin was issued by the Republic of Panama in 1940. It had a value equal to 0.0125 balboas.

The coin is composed of bronze. It weighs approximately 3.1 grams, and measures 20 millimeters in diameter and 1.15 millimeters in thickness. A helmeted portrait of Spanish conquistador Vasco Núñez de Balboa, best known for crossing the Isthmus of Panama to the Pacific Ocean in 1513, is featured on the obverse. His likeness separates the words of his name to different sides of the coin: "VASCO NUNEZ" is at the left and "DE BALBOA" is at the right. Directly underneath the portrait is the year of minting. The coin's value is inscribed in Spanish on the reverse as "UNO Y CUARTO CENTÉSIMOS" ("One and one fourth centésimos"). Above it is the state title of Panama ("REPÚBLICA DE PANAMA"). In total, about 1,600,000 examples were produced.
