Superb find! Aisle I could find one!

Great find! I have yet to find a Spanish coin.

Looks like a 1R to me, not a 1/2 R. Diameter of 1/2 R is 18mm; diameter of 1R is 20. Also coin legend appears to read 1R.
Coin is certainly Spanish, but may not be from Spain; certainly not Mexico which would have assayer 'FF', not "MI". Unfortunately, I can't read the mintmark.

thanks for the info, i took another pic of what i think the mintmart would be hopefully its good enough for you to see and let me know more
the coin is bigger than a dime i was hoping it was a 1

Nice silver coin so i have 3 silver coins as your coin.
One third jewelry of the World are under sand so far

My vote is for half reale. VERY cool find. Congrats!
May 26, 2012, 12:11 PM
With the better pics, the assayer now might be read as "MJ". As such, "MJ" was the assayer at the Lima, Peru mint in 1779 when 1R coins were produced.

I believe the mint mark is NR -- the mint is Bogota.
The NR stands for 'nuevo reino' (New Kingdom) as the area was once called.
Much better pics, thx.

Great find there NF, love the spanish silver.
May 26, 2012, 10:22 PM
awesome find, looks to be a 1 real. I'm fairly certainly it's "real" and not "reale." If there was an "e" on the end, it'd then be pronounced -ree-al-ey, but it's a ree-al.
