These 2 Reales silver quarters, struck from 1812-1828 in 90.3% silver at Spanish-American colonial mints, became widely used in early America. In fact, Spanish coins were accepted as U.S. legal tender until 1857 – when redemption for U.S. coins was authorized and commenced. But having served as America’s coinage for over 75 years, it’s no wonder that Spanish colonial issues are the first coins discussed in the official Guidebook of United States Coins (Red Book).
Each coin depicts Ferdinand VII of Spain. To add a piece of early coinage history to your collection at an affordable price, don’t miss this opportunity to own one of America’s first silver quarters!
