Luis I coinage is among the rarest and most valuable for collectors. He only reigned 7 months during the year of 1724 and then he died at age 17. His father Felipe V returned to the throne after this, hence Felipe V coinage exists prior and post Luis' I.
Any coinage from posterior years was already minted at the time of his dead and kept in storage, or was released as a memento from the dead King.
