Colombia - Republic. 8 Reales, 1821-BA-JF (Bogota). WR-8; Eliz-18; KM-6. 23.05 grams. Indian portrait type. Head of Indian left, wearing feathered headdress. Reverse: Pomegranate; value flanking. Good even strike. Fields with satiny to smooth luster. Light smokey tone, with a few hints of violet. Extremely Rare in high grade. This example ranks among the finest known. NGC graded MS-61.

This coin was issued by the state of Cundinamarca, even though it says Republic of Colombia on the obverse. This occurred because the provinces of Colombia had not yet united to form the Republic of Greater Colombia,and individual states were still issuing their own coins. Independence was already a foregone conclusion, but details had not yet coalesced. This is one of the more common coins in lower grades, yet exceptionally rare in choice condition.
Estimated Value $2,500 - 3,000.

Realized $8,338
