1890 25 Pesetas, Original? Restrike? Fake?

2 posts in this topic

I picked this up at a local coin shop because I thought it was cool. After doing some research it appears the original run of this coin ended in 1881. I read they did some restikes in the 1960s of this coin but cannot find anything about an 1890 restrike.

Does anyone know anything about this? Original 1890 coin? A restrike? When were restrikes produced? Metal content? FAKE?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

1890 is not a “real” date for this coin. Hey @RWB, and it doesn’t even come from the Rockies! It’s not a real coin, but a fantasy piece. I found a post in Spanish on a numismatic discussion board and had it translated into English. Herewith, the translation:

“It's a reproduction of jewelry, the wrong date is to avoid counterfeiting problems.”


Or so they think, eh Roger?
