Ecuadorian sucre ceased being legal tender on September 11, 2000. But the Central Bank of Ecuador keeps on producing commemorative coins for collectors nominated in sucres.

The image of the balsa for this coin was taken from De Ulloa, Antonio y Jorge Juan. Relación Histórica del Viaje a la América Meridional - Madrid, 1748. Part 1,  volume 1.
