Spain 5 Pesetas  1871
Spain 5 Pesetas 1871

Amadeo I ruled Spain only from 1871 to 1873. These 5 pesetas coins bear a large 1871 as the authorization date, plus other dates in the tiny stars on each side of the king's portrait. They are valuable coins when found in good condition:

worn: $25 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $35
well preserved: $100
fully uncirculated: $500

If you can find a coin with DE initials and a tiny 73 in the small star, it is worth more:

1871 (73) DE-M
worn: $100 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $400
well preserved: $1500
fully uncirculated: $2500

These are catalog values. Convert them to actual buy and sell values using the information on our Terminology page.
