The specimen shown is an example of a type struck in Santiago, Chile, since 1990. 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. The effigy of Bernardo O'Higgins, hero of the struggle for independence, was first used on copper pesos of the 1940's.

Recorded mintage: unknown (common in all grades).

Specification: nickel-brass.
