U.S. Philippine 1919-S, 50 Centavos Silver Coin- (2 Silver Coins)

U.S. Territorial Philippine Fifty Centavos silver coin 1919s.

This is a highly collectible U.S. Territorial Philippine Fifty Centavos silver coin dated 1919s.
From 1908 to 1935 the United States administered the Philippine Islands and issued several nice coins that are eagerly collected today. The same basic pattern of a woman, an anvil, and a volcano was used on 10, 20, and 50 centavos coins, and also the 1 peso coins. There are 100 centavos in one peso.These coins were minted in silver, so they carry value based on silver content alone.


The obverse was designed by Melecio Figueroa and features a young Filipina in a flowing dress standing while striking an anvil with a hammer held in her right hand, her left arm is half raised and she holds an olive branch in her hand. In the background is the Mayon volcano with a billowing smoke coming from the crater. On the upper periphery of the coin is the denomination “FIFTY CENTAVOS” and on the lower periphery is the word “FILIPINAS”.
The reverse design features an eagle perched atop a shield.   On the outer periphery are the words “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and the year of issue.  To the left of the year may be a mint mark “M” Manila or “S” San Francisco (such as for these four coins) . Coin with no mint marks were minted at the Philadelphia Mint.

1795 Bolivia 8 Reales Carolus IIII Silver Coin with chopmarks

1795 Bolivia 8 Reales Carolus IIII Silver Coin with chopmarks

This is a highly collectible eight reales of 1795 from Bolivia, Henly. These old beauties are part of a major group of collectible coins known as Spanish Colonials. This coin, dated 1795, has King Carlos (Charles, Carolus) IIII of Spain. Other coins, dated later, have Carlos IV. These were also minted in 1/2, 1, 2, and 8 reales denominations, most of which look similar but have different sizes. You can tell the denomination by the 'R' marking: R = 1/2 real, 1R = 1 real, 2R = 2 reales, 4R, and 8R.
You can see several chop marks on this coin. These marks were likely struck into the coin by a merchant in New York or San Francisco Chinatown to indicate that the coin is a good one, not a fake. Collectors like chop marks and will pay a small premium for them. They add interest to an already intereting coin.

Recorded mintage: unknown but common.

This is an example of the "portrait" or "modified pillar" design. In the reverse legend the monogram 'PTS' is the mintmark indicating the coin was produced at the mint in Potosí, Bolivia. This is followd by '8 R' which indicates the denomination of eight reales. The P and the P are the initials of the assayers.
Charles IV ascended to the throne following the death of Charles III on December 14, 1788 and reigned until 1808. However, due to the problems relating to the production and transportation of new dies for the colonial mints an edict of December 24, 1788 allowed the American mints to continue producing coins using dies with the portrait of Charles III but changing the name to Charles IV. In Potosí the first coins on 1789 had the name of Charles III, during that year the portrait was retained but the name was changed to Charles IV, similar coins were produced throughout 1790, as the present example. The 1791 Potosí coins have the new portrait of Charles IV.

Light to moderate wear; very clear details. This is the actual coin that you will get.

1754 Mexico Ferdnd VI, 8 reales, Spanish Colonial Silver DOS MUNDOS or PILLAR COINAGE

1754 Mexico Ferdnd VI, 8 reales, Spanish Colonial

This is a highly collectible eight reales of 1754, mint, pillar type, ("different crowns")  royal crown and imperial crown (1754. México. MM. 8 reales. Columnario. real - corona imperial.) This date marks the transition between "crowns alike" and "different crowns" (this coin specimen). Very rare, very fine "DOS MUNDOS or PILLAR Spanish Colonial COINAGE". 


M 'o' on top' (Mexico)  - the origin or mint where the coin was struck
'1754' - the year of mintage
'MM' - assayer's initial
'8' - denomination of the coins
'Ferdnd VI' - the ruling monarch

These beautiful silver coins proclaimed by their bold design Spanish dominion over the Old World of Europe and the New World of the Americas and the East. They steadily came to replace the much abused cob coins through the medium of a prescribed circular shape sealed against debasement by a distinctive milled floral edge.

These coins were the famous "pieces of eight" (referring to the 8-real coin) of legend and literature. Exquisitely designed, and strictly of 916.66 fine silver, these columnarias were minted with screw presses in the same denominations as the earlier cobs and immediately established the well earned reputation of being the best known and respected coins in every part of the known world, making them the prototype of modern international currency..


The 8 Reales represented the largest denomination for the Pillar coinage series. These crown-size coins were approximately 37 to 41 millimeters in diameter and weighed around 417.6 grains (27 grams). It carried a silver fineness of .916. This fineness was a little devaluation from the old .930 carried by the old cobs. This 'devaluation' was possibly made to offset the increased cost in the manufacture of these coins.

the crowned Pillars of Hercules and the crowned hemispheres of the Old and New World floating on the sea
legend PLUS ULTRA, which means "further beyond", on the scroll the twines on the pillars
depicted the Spanish colonial domination of both Old and New World with the latin inscription -- "VTRAQUE VNUM", meaning the union of two worlds.
the crowned Coat of Arms of Spain, along with the Latin legend "FERDND-VI-D-G-HISPAN-ET- IND-REX" (Ferdinand VI - By the grace of God; King of Spain and the Indies.)

When Charles I (1516-1556), the first Hapsburg monarch, sailed for Spain from Netherlands to claim and sit on the throne left vacant by his grandfather, Ferdinand the Catholic, a group of forty ships accompanied him. On his flagship, it carried a picture of the Pillars of Hercules with scrolls that twines around the pillars. The scroll bore the young monarch's motto - Plus Ultra.

The origin of the pillars and "PLUS ULTRA" are traced to the legendary Greek hero, Hercules, where on his journey to capture a 3-bodied monster on the island of Erythia, he erected two pillars on the sides of the Straights of Gibraltar between Europe and Africa. During those time, it was thought to mark the edge of the world, hence in latin -- "Ne Plus Ultra" (Nothing lies further).

Charles I removed the word "Ne" and carried "Plus Ultra" as his motto in his ambition to expand the Spanish Empire beyond its European possessions during that period. Note that Magellan discovered the Americas during those period.

It was ironic though that it was in the period of this coinage that Spain lost its luster as a world superpower and began to loose grip of its colonies.

Light wear; very clear details. This is the actual coin that you will get.
