10th Ibero-American Series

Introduction

The year 1992 marked the release of the First Ibero-American Series, following upon a process of nearly 4 years of conversations. At that point in time the mere fact that 14 countries had agreed to the minting of a coin in common was in itself a historic, cultural, economic and political achievement.

As a consequence the Ibero-American Series became an important numismatic event. Twenty-three years later we are still making history.

The coins included in the first nine sets in this Series were allocated the metrics of the so-called Piece-of-Eight or silver peso duro, a coin in worldwide usage for centuries that was also minted on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, as is now happening once again in the territories of America and the Iberian Peninsula. For this tenth set we have begun to match the metrics of the 4-reales coin.

Other releases in this Series: (5th Series) (6th Series) (7th Series) (8th Series) (9th Series)


Details

A feature peculiar to these series is that each participating country allows its own national coat-of-arms to be reproduced and portrayed on the coins of the remaining countries, a never-before-seen circumstance in twenty-five centuries of Numismatic History.

The reverses of the coins, accordingly, bear the national coat-of-arms of the issuing country surrounded by the arms of the other participating countries.

This Tenth Ibero-American Series was dedicated to our CULTURAL ROOTS. The coins display lovely and creative designs, including the Wiphala flag on the Argentine coin, the Cave Paintings and the Pottery shown on the Cuban coin, the Lovers of Sumpa on the Ecuadorian coin, Spain's Warrior of Moixent, Guatemala's K'iche Maya Cosmogony displaying a very original design, Nicaragua's flechero Indian braves, Paraguay's Tereré, Peru's range of coins showing the Machu Picchu, the balconies of Lima, the Gold Tumi, and Portugal's tribute to its great liberator and leader, Viriato.

Mintage limit: 10,000 sets.
