These silver pesos were produced in a period when the Morgan dollar's minting was suspended. Struck by the San Francisco Mint as America governed the Philippines after Spanish rule, this magnificent silver peso displays Liberty breaking the chains of tyranny with a smoldering volcano in the background. Although not a U.S. coin, this big silver issue features an eagle and shield with the inscription, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. The denomination ONE PESO and FILIPINAS is inscribed on the obverse. These uniquely bi-national issues remain in nicely detailed Very Fine quality. Our choice of date.
