Spain 1848M real rev DSLR.jpg

This type was struck in Madrid and Seville 1837-49. The Spanish "de vellon" coinage system, used 1808-50, set twenty reales = one peso instead of the traditional eight. The coins minted using that standard were not marked in any way different from the concurrent eight reales standard, a source of confusion for collectors today, It must have been a major irritant for the inhabitants of the time. In 1850 the currency was decimalized and the twenty reales reduced to 26.91 grams.

Recorded mintage: unknown but a common date.

Specification: 1.35 g, .812 fine silver, .039 troy oz ASW (not 3.38 g as stated in the SCWC).

Catalog reference: KM 518.1.
