The Spanish mints feature large issues of a variety of copper coins which did not circulate at all in the Spanish American colonies. In the predecimal system which obtained until 1847, 34 maravedis = one real of silver. This four maravedis was worth 2/17 of a real; history does not record the reason for the odd division. This type was struck in Jubia, Segovia and Barcelona 1837-50 and was accompanied by copper one, two and eight maravedis. The type is not scarce.

Recorded mintage: unknown but common.

Specification: copper.

Catalog reference: Cayón-16646, KM 530.2.
