This Spanish equivalent of the pillar dollar is a one year type struck at the Madrid and Seville mints. The SCWC lists it as the most available of all eight reales prior to the 1790's. It is still very scarce, especially compared to the enormous output of the Latin American mints. The bust type was introduced to the Spanish mints in 1772.

Recorded mintage: unknown.
