Comments

Special coinage for use in the three government leper colonies (Lazareto is Spanish) of Agua de Dios, Cano de Lord, and Contratacion.
The hospitals were closed in the late 1950s and patients were allowed to exchange these special coins for regular currency at any bank.

Initials RH are located under bow on reverse.
