Hi Guys,

does someone knows where this coins is coming from?

Thanks a lot



Turn the side with the cross around and you see the simple arms of the Spanish Habsburgs (castles and lions) and CATOLI. On the portrait side are the remnants of HISPAN 17. This should be a copper coin. It is badly cleaned, but a long soak in acid-free olive oil may well restore at least some of the copper's natural colour.

This is a copper treseta issued on Majorca, for Philip V of Spain the first Spanish king of the house of Bourbon, which is still ruling. Possible dates are 1722, 1723 and 1724. KM 36.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.


Hi Peter,

thanks for your help.
