CHL 2000 100pesos-rev.JPG

The specimen shown is an example of a type struck in Santiago, Chile, in 1989-2000. In 1960, the peso was dropped in favor of the escudo, with 1 escudo = 1000 pesos. The escudo itself was abandoned in 1975 for a return to the peso, with 1 new peso = 100 escudos. This design was replaced by a slightly refined version in 1987 (KM 226.2), which type is still in production.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: aluminum-bronze, 26.8 mm diameter, edge lettered POR LA RAZON O LA FUERZA.

Catalog reference: KM 226.2.
