Balboa is central to the history of Panama as he is the Spanish conquistador that discovered Panama on his way to finding the Pacific Ocean. To honor this explorer, the Franklin Mint added Balboa’s face to the obverse of many of the Balboa coins. Later they added Simon Bolivar, the President of Panama on the Obverse side. The design on this side depends on the year of issue.
On the reverse side of the coin is the Coat of Arms of Panama. This Coat of Arms is held up by a heraldic eagle and has flags around it. In the eagle’s beak is a ribbon that has the Latin phrase, ‘PROMUNDI BENEFICO’ which means “FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE WORLD’. Above the eagle are nine stars. Around the coin is ‘REPUBLICA DE PANAMA’. At the bottom of the coin is ‘20 BALBOAS’.
