The specimen shown was lot 1319 in a recent Aureo sale (Barcelona, Spain). It was struck in Seville in the reign of Philip V. Variations of this basic design were struck from the 1600's thru 1762. This specimen is a one year type but it is catalogued as one of the more available issues. It is still very scarce, especially compared to the enormous output of the Latin American mints, which were still striking cobs during this period. The bust type was introduced to the Spanish mints in 1772.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 27.07 g, .903 fine silver, .786 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: Cayón-9268, KM 310, Dav-1696.
