This Spanish two escudos was struck at the Cadiz mint in 1811. The type was struck 1811-14 as French troops occupied the rest of Spain. Unlike the Latin American mints which concentrated on eight escudos, the most common Spanish gold coins of the period were the half escudo and two escudos. The mint was moved to Cadiz in 1811 and did not return to Seville until 1815.
