Coins from Cordoba
It is located to the west of the Central region of the country, bounded on the north by Catamarca and Santiago del Estero, on the east by Santa Fe, on the southeast by the Province of Buenos Aires, on the south by Province of La Pampa and on the west by San Luis and The Rioja. It has an area of 165,321 km² and a population of 3,308,876 (last census 2010). Its capital is the city of Córdoba. It was founded by the Sevillian Jerónimo Luis de Cabrera on July 6, 1573, as a town of Spaniards that served as a refuge against the natives, and thus be able to move and trade freely. The city was declared provisional capital on two occasions: the first, in 1806, during the English Invasions to the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata and then, in 1955, during the events of the Liberating Revolution. The province of Córdoba had founded in 1815 its first mint - the first purely Argentine - that did not get to emit regularly. Although they are considered as the first Cordovan coins to the quarters of 1833, there is a small anepigraphic coin that is known as "Rondeau quarters" and that some attribute to that province. Its real circulation time is ignored. In the emission of the Mint of Cordoba, neither the word Argentina nor Republic appear in one of the two faces. The political influence of the time is reflected in many currencies. Numerous are also the types of quarters: to the simple castle they follow others crowned by a rosette or a cross, to finalize showing lateral flags. All the suns on the back have eyes, nose and mouth, and their rays appear well differentiated in some pieces, or in the form of a star or rosette in others. It is common that the name of the province appears with v, and it is curious to observe some specimens in which, due to poor calculation of the engravers, the name appears unfinished due to lack of space. We read like this CORDOV and CORDO.
