Spain 1810-C CI 2 reales
This specimen was lot 587 in a recent Soler y Llach sale (Barcelona, January 2010). This type was struck in Madrid 1814-33, in Seville 1815-33 and in Cadiz 1810-12. It is much scarcer than the SCWC catalog values would indicate. Lower in fineness than contemporary Latin American issues, they were discounted in international trade.
Recorded mintage: unknown.
Specification: 6.77 g, .812 fine silver, .176 troy oz ASW.
Catalog reference: KM 460.1.
