Aureo sale 233, lot 88
The specimen shown was lot 88 in Aureo y Calico sale 233 (Barcelona, April 2011), where it sold for 35 euros (about US$58 including buyer's fee). The catalog description[1] noted,
"1845. Segovia. 8 maravedís. Bella. Brillo original. Rara así. S/C-. (Eight maravedis of 1845, Segovia mint, handsome, original luster, about uncirculated and rare thus.)
The Spanish mints feature large issues of a variety of copper coins which did not circulate at all in the Spanish American colonies. In the predecimal system which obtained until 1847, 34 maravedis = one real of silver. The maravedi was worth 1/34 of a real; history does not record the reason for the odd division. This type was struck in Jubia, Segovia and Barcelona 1837-50 and was accompanied by copper one, two and four maravedis. The type is not scarce and this mint is the commonest of the three.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: copper.
