This specimen was lot 71516 in Stack's Bowers Collector's Choice sale (Santa Ana, CA, May 2018), where it sold for $168. The catalog description[1] noted, "SANTO DOMINGO. 4 Maravedi, ND, Charles & Johanna (1516-55). PCGS Genuine--Environmental Damage, EF Details Secure Holder. Some minor pitting, boldly struck showing good detail. EX: Stack's Bowers & Ponterio sale 160, lot 8531." This enigmatic and seldom seen type is difficult to attribute. Two maravedis are also known to exist but are very rare. In the 1530's, it was the Spanish conquistadores' plan to mint gold and silver to send home to Spain and mint copper coins for the use of the natives. This was frustrated by the locals' adamant refusal to accept copper as money and the scheme was abandoned. The conquest of Mexico and the discovery there of large silver deposits vitiated the need for a mint on Hispaniola and it was closed.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: copper.

Catalog reference: KM-45; Cal-Type 134 #208, Cayón-2991.
