Guatemala 25 Centavos and 1 Peso 1859 to 1869
What a neat coin, Chuck. These are big and bold silver coins from Guatemala, and bear the portrait of Rafael Carrera, charismatic ruler of Guatemala from 1844 to 1848 and from 1851 until his death in 1865.
The pattern with Carrera's portrait, shield, sunburst, and flags appears on both the 25 centavos and 1 peso denominations.
