Colombia - 20 Pesos, 1869/8 (Medellin). Fr-101; KM-142.2. 32.12 grams. Diademed head of Liberty left. Reverse: Bannered arms surmounted by Condor; value, fineness, and mint. A remarkable, clean, full strike. The obverse die refurbished, thus making the strike somewhat granular in appearance; the reverse, the dies of 1868, still very fresh. Trivial edge flaw and edge scrape, otherwise coin fresh and pristine, with satiny luster, especially on reverse. Very Rare in this state of preservation. Probably among the finer known. NGC graded MS-64.

Medellin, is the second largest city in Colombia with a population of over 2 million people. The city was founded in 1616 by the Spanish conquistador Francisco Herrera Y Compuzano. The name Medellin derives from the Spanish city of the same name in the province of Badajoz.
Estimated Value $2,500 - 3,000.

Realized $8,338
