Restrepo-455.7 / What does this mean?

I'm looking at a Columbian 5 Peso coin in a PCGS holder and on the label it reads "Restrepo-455.7" - I googled Restrepo and in English it means "Backward Movement" or "Setback". So what exactly does this mean concerning the coin?

    Now it makes sense -

    One of those unfortunate surnames.

    "Hi, I'm George Setback, here to help move you forward."

    Raper, Coward and Titsworth are other examples of unfortunate surnames that I came across on the Google machine.

    Riesta is a town in Asturias Spain, same as it is Restrepo.
