This dinero, or dime, was struck 1888-92 in Lima, Peru, in respectable numbers. Many were saved and uncirculated specimens are available. Most issued after 1898 were made from melted down one sol coins. Varieties and overdates abound. A later type, with a slightly different figure of seated Liberty, was issued 1893-1916 (KM 204.2). The silver coin was replaced in 1918 by a copper-nickel ten centavos.

Recorded mintage: 400,000.

Specification: 2.5 g, .900 fine silver, reeded edge.

Catalog reference: KM 204.1.
