Coins from Puerto Rico

Countries and territories › Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is the eastern most island of the Greater Antilles. Colonized by the Spanish in the early 16th century, it ignored the Bolivarian revolutions that swiped through most of New Spain in the early 19th century. With most of New Spain lost and Mexico minting its own currency, the Spanish introduced the Puerto Rican Peso banknotes on the island. Only in 1895, three years before the Spanish would cede the island to the victorious USA in the Spanish-American War, coins were introduced in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 40 centavos and 1 peso.
