Colombia 1847 8 reales rev DSLR.jpg

This type was struck 1847 only at the Bogotá mint and is scarce but not rare in circulated condition. It is the last eight reales struck in Colombia; at 20 grams, it is only 80% of the ten reales (KM 107) which superseded it. The richly symbolic obverse design has made this type among the more popular South American crowns.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 20 g, .900 fine, .578 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: KM 106.
