Chile 1814 8 reales rev DSLR.jpg

This specimen is one of a series struck 1812-17 in Santiago, Chile, during the reign of Ferdinand VII. The opening of an enlarged Casa de Moneda in 1805 allowed the increase in mintages and this type is not rare. The bust of Ferdinand VII appears on the 2 reales, 8 reales and 8 escudos. An overdate, 1814/7, is noted for the year. This type was superseded in 1817 by the famous volcano peso.

Recorded mintage: 368,000.

Specification: 27.07 g, .896 fine silver, .780 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: KM 80.
