Spain 10, 20, and 40 Centimos 1864 to 1868

You must compare your coin carefully to the one in our picture. This page applies only to coins which look *exactly* like this one, except, of course, for differences due to the 10, 20, or 40 denomination on the back.

There are many coins with Queen Isabel II on them, and they all say Isabel 2 por la gracia de dios y la constitucion with varying levels of abbreviation, depending on the size of the coin. If you have a different coin, with small, subtle differences than this one, look for it on CoinQuest or submit an appraisal request.

Here are the stats for this short series of centimos:

10 CENTIMOS: 15 mm diameter, 0.034 troy ounces silver
worn: $10 US dollars catalog value
average circulated: $35

20 CENTIMOS: 18 mm diameter, 0.068 troy ounces silver
