This Spanish equivalent of a pillar half real was struck at the Cuenca mint 1719-27 during the latter part of the reign of king Philip V. The SCWC awards it a low catalog value. The Spanish mints, Seville, Madrid and Segovia, were active in striking this denomination. It is still scarce compared to the enormous output of the Latin American mints, which were still striking cobs. The pillar type was introduced to the Mexico City mint in 1732 and to Lima in 1752.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 1.69 g, .903 fine silver, .196 troy oz ASW.
