In 1824 a provincial Mint was created in La Rioja, which used similar design to the Potosí national coinage. Gold and silver coins were made with the name of the United Provinces so that they could circulate at the national level. The mint of La Rioja later replaced it, and it was definitely lost in 1815. In 1838 the Rosista Federal issue stands out with the legend "Eterno Loor al Restaurador Rosas". In 1840, when the Brianza government lost power in La Rioja, evicted by the Unitarians, the governor who replaced them (Federal) issued these coins, until La Rioja was retaken in 1841 by the federal troops, which reissued the Federal currency. In this issue appears the Legend REPUBLICA ARGENTINA for the first time. In 1842 the emissions with the bust of Juan Manuel de Rosas and the legend "Eterno Loor al Restaurador Rosas" stands out.
