Spain 1925 25 centimos rev DSLR.jpg

In 1885, Alfonso XII died young of tuberculosis, leaving a posthumous son who was crowned Alfonso XIII. In 1869, the peso was reduced to 25 grams and set equal to five pesetas with each peseta divisible into 100 centimos. This system would prevail until the coming of the euro. This design was the first of its denomination; a different design (KM 742) was used in 1927. In 1931, the king was overthrown and exiled.

Recorded mintage: 8,001,000.

Specification: copper-nickel.

Catalog reference: KM 740.
