Peru 1/2 Real and 1, and 5 Pesetas 1880 to 1883

For a few short years Peru issued these silver coins in real and peseta denominations. They are highly collectible and good looking specimens command good value. The one in our picture comes from ArtCoinsRoma in Rome, and CoinQuest thanks ArtCoinsRoma for use of their image. It sure is a nice-looking coin.

Here are some typical catalog values for all dates.

1/2 REAL (14 mm diameter)
worn: $150 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $450
well preserved: $650
fully uncirculated: $1500
note: coins with holes are worth far, far less

1 PESETA (22 mm diameter)

fully uncirculated: $150

5 PESETAS (37 mm diameter)
