    Interesting question. As a type collector, I never considered focussing on a particular denomination although the country focus has been on Mexican issues with fill-ins from Guatemala, Bolivia, Peru, and Colombia.

  • I collected a type set of Mexican pesos years ago. Maybe it’s time to get some new pieces.

    Since I don’t have any it’s been pretty easy up to now. 😂

    1/2R, 1R, 2R, 4R Bolivia (1767-1770) and Peru (1752-1772). Have a low number of Guatemala and Mexico but don's actively buy it. Same for the Lion & castle 1/4R from all mints.

    All Latin American crowns, but only with chopmarks. Special preference to Latin American republic pieces.

    Feel like we are in the UK. Why not just call them Latin American dollars.

    Because crown sized denominations are just that ….not necessarily limited to Latin America

    I manage money. I earn money. I save money .
    I give away money. I collect money.
    I don’t love money . I do love the Lord God.
