These 90% silver pesos were first minted from 1915-1916, and then again from 1932-1934 at the Philadelphia Mint on Peace dollar planchets early in the 20th century. Not only was the silver American, but the design was executed by Charles Barber, U.S. Mint Chief Engraver. Shown is a large star and the Cuban National Coat of Arms. Many were held by the Cuban government as backing to existing paper currency and later melted. Our Very Fine quality carries clear and detailed engravings. Our choice of 1915-1916 or 1932-1934 date.
