This copper-nickel two pesos "papel moneda" was struck for Colombia in 1907, 1910 and 1914. These coins were issued to retire paper money printed during the civil war of 1899-1903, hence the "p/m" marked on the reverse. The chaos of that civil war enabled the United States to engineer Panamanian independence. They later circulated equal to the copper-nickel two centavos of 1918-47 (KM 198). They are today very scarce in nice condition. The second specimen was lot 1721 in Sedwick Treasure Auction 27 (Winter Park, FL, May 2020), where it sold for $142.80. The catalog description[1] noted, "Colombia, copper-nickel papel moneda 2 pesos, 1910AM, NGC MS 64. Lustrous with faint multicolored toning, nicely struck. NGC #4770572-015."

Recorded mintage: 1,189,000.

Specification: 3 g, copper-nickel, 19 mm diameter.

Catalog reference: Restrepo-353.2; KM-B279.
