Spain 1904 2 centimos rev DSLR.jpg

This Spanish two centimos was part of the third decimal reform of 1870. By the reform of 1870, the revolutionary government adopted the standard of the Latin Monetary Union, where one peseta = one French franc and five pesetas = 25 g of silver, .900 fine. The peseta remained in use (tho it ceased to be silver in the 1930's) until the adoption of the euro in 2001. This type was struck 1904-05 and is common.

Recorded mintage: 10,000,000.
