Peru, 1/2 Dinero Unc
A group of these early Peru silver coins came up at auction and we bought them! The
denomination is 1/2 Dinero and they were issued between 1901 and 1917, which
means of course, that they are over 100 years old, but also in uncirculated condition.
You do not see these coins in such high grade all that often. We were delighted to buy the
lot, as the price was reasonable and the quality very high, a combination you don’t
They are small Silver coins, but of high grade silver (900 fine), as Peru is known
for being an important silver producer. The quality is outstanding and we can supply
a few different dates. For a coin you never see in excellent condition, what more
can you ask for?
