Shown is a 1772 one real from the old Guatemala mint, first year of a type struck 1772-87. In 1776, an earthquake demolished Antigua Guatemala (including the mint) and a new city was built some miles away. To mark the move, the mintmark was changed to "NG" ("Nueva Guatemala", still the capital of Guatemala) on all issues of 1777 and after. Harris<sup>[1]</sup> notes that Guatemala is the second rarest mint (after [[Colombia 1772-NR VJ 1/2 real|Bogota]]) for portrait one reales of Charles III; he counted over three times as many Mexico City one reales of the same type.

Shown is a 1772 half real from the old Guatemala mint, first year of a type struck 1772-87. In 1776, an earthquake demolished Antigua Guatemala (including the mint) and a new city was built some miles away. To mark the move, the mintmark was changed to "NG" ("Nueva Guatemala", still the capital of Guatemala) on all issues of 1777 and after. Harris[1] notes that Guatemala is the second rarest mint (after Bogotá) for portrait one reales of Charles III; he counted over three times as many Mexico City one reales of the same type. The second specimen was part of lot 28698 in Heritage sale 3031 (Dallas, January 2014), which sold for $352.50. The catalog description[2] noted, "Colonial Busted Minors Trio, Three coins as follows: ½ Real 1772 G-P, 2 Reales 1797 NG-M, ½ Real 1809 NG-M. The 1809 ½ Real is close to Mint State and very scarce, the others Fine."

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 1.69 g, .903 fine silver, .049 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: Cayón-11103, KM 33.1.
