Bolivia 1773 4 reales rev DSLR.jpg

This is a early example of a type struck 1773-89 at Potosi, Bolivia (then called Upper Peru). It was replaced in 1791 by the bust of Charles IV. Harris[1] notes that Potosi four reales of Charles III are the commonest mint, with twice as many as Mexico City. Recent hoard finds have only increased this number. Assayer JR is recorded for 1767-78.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 13.53 g, .903 fine silver, .392 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: Cayón-11765, KM 54.
