Spain 2, 4, and 8 Maravedis 1816 to 1836
That is Ferdinand VII, King of Spain on your old coin. These are more common that one might think, but coins in good shape, with lots of detail, nice surfaces, and no problems (scratches, stains, corrosion, cleanings) are worth much more than the coins you normally see, which are well worn.
Coin: 4231 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
