This specimen is one of a series struck 1808-11 using the "imaginary bust" during the reign of Ferdinand VII (1808-33). As a class, colonial coinage of Peru is much less plentiful than that of Mexico, tho it is more available than the remaining mints. However, Harris[1] noted finding more Peruvian two reales of Ferdinand VII than that of Mexico, so it is safe to say that this type is not rare.

Specification: 6.77 grams, .896 fine silver, .195 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: KM 104.2.
