Comments



From 1868 to 1982, two dates may be found on most Spanish coinage. The larger date is the year of authorization and the smaller date, incused on the two 6-pointed-stars found on most types, is the year of issue.

Different sources give different mintage. Here the mintage is given by Aledon, the best resource for pesetas.
