These scarce Souvenir Cuban pesos were privately struck and issued in the United States in 1897 to raise funds for the war against Spain. Leonor Molina is depicted on the obverse and the Cuban coat-of-arms is on the reverse. The concept was that the holders of these coins would be able to redeem them once Spain fell and the new Cuban Republic was Established. Today, they are quite scarce!
These Star pesos were produced in the United States for circulation in Cuba in 1915 and 1916 and then again for 1932, 1933 and 1934. They were struck on silver dollar blanks identical to those used for the US Peace Dollars!
These ABC pesos were produced at the U.S. Philadelphia mint from 1934-1939. This coin is the same weight and fineness as the Peace Dollar. They were coined as a bullion reserve to guarantee the value of the paper currency issues of 1934 and later.
This is the peso coin from the Marti Centenary series set of coins (1c, 25c, 50c and $1) issued to commemorate the 100th birthday of Jose Marti. Jose Marti is on the obverse and national symbols are presented on the reverse.
