Bolivia 1807 4 reales rev DSLR.jpg

This is a late example of a type struck 1791-1808 at Potosi, Bolivia (then called Upper Peru). It was replaced in 1816 by the bust of Ferdinand VII. Harris[1] notes that Potosi four reales of Charles IV are the commonest mint, ahead of Mexico City. Recent hoard finds have only increased this number. Assayer PJ is recorded for 1803-25.

Recorded mintage: 101,000.

Specification: 13.53 g, .896 fine silver, .390 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: KM 72.
