In 1991 fourteen countries of Ibero-American origin initiated the significant cultural and numismatic project that is the IBERO-AMERICAN COMMEMORATIVE COIN SERIES.
We have already released eight collector sets, all under the general caption A MEETING OF TWO WORLDS, and dedicated to themes common to our history and to our roots.
On this occasion, all the participating countries wished to commemorate the 20th ANNIVERSARY of the series by giving the same title to this 9th Collector Set, composed of eight coins and two commemorative medals. The coins will have the same sizes as usual, the Piece of Eight, also called the Spanish ounce, measuring 40 mm in diameter and weighing 27 grams.
For the coins in this latest set, it was thought fitting to recreate the designs featured on the coins in the previous sets, and in so doing, to represent the friendship and union of the Ibero-American countries over the last twenty years.
The reverses of the coins, as in the previous sets, and as the distinguishing mark of the series, portray the coats-of-arms of all the participating countries displayed in a circle around the armorial bearings of the issuing country.
A singular trait of these sets is that each participating country allows that its national coat-of-arms be replicated on the coins issued by the other countries, an occurrence that has never been known to happen in the twenty-five centuries of numismatic history.
The reverses, therefore, feature the national coat-of-arms of the issuing country surrounded by the bearings of the other participating countries.
