Argentina and Uruguay's first coinage - 1813 Sunface 2 Reales
Found this auction on Ebay with a few hours remaining and it was still sitting at a pretty low price. Decided to place a bid and ended up winning it for just a hair under $50, before shipping.
The early 1800s was a tumultuous time in Latin America with most of the republics gaining their independence. As I understand this coinage was struck at the Potosi mint under revolutionary control. Only four 1813 2Rs have been auctioned on Heritage in the last decade, attesting to the scarcity of this piece. It's not a particularly pretty one, but it's not like one has a great deal of choice with these. Hope you enjoy this coin.
