Provisional coinage 1915-1923 was made in order to facilitate conversion from the Real system to the decimal system, because up to that point Real and Peso were both legal tender, but Real was being phased out. For most of fraction it was easy to convert them, but being a system based on 8, an 1/8 Peso equivalent was needed, this 12.5 coin was the answer. There are two varieties of this coin. The one pictured has a short "1" in the denomination on the reverse. Another variety exists with a longer "1" which extends even with the bottom of the "2" .
