Spain 1, 2.50, and 5 Pesetas 1946 to 1975
These are neat collectible coins, SilverSpoon. They are made from aluminum bronze, so when they are uncirculated, or nearly so, they have a sporty gold-colored look. The 1 and 2.50 pesetas coins look alike, but the latter are slightly bigger and heavier, and read '2.50' instead of 'UNA'. The 5 pesetas reads 'cinco pesetas.'
Coin: 8801 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies

1947 una pesata coin with '19' in first star and other star is blank. The coin is in otherwise non-worn condition. Is this unusual to have a blank star. - a
All these coins are supposed to be struck with a date, but it sounds like you have found a coin that was struck through die grease on the very spot where these two numerals of the date would be. Since the star is a raised part of the coin, it's a sunken part of the die, and one can easily imagine how the grease of freshly lubricated machinery can collect in that little star-shaped crevice. If my guess is correct, the value of your coins is probably around $5 to $10 if sold to the right collector. The tough part will be finding somebody who collects modern Spanish error coins! - CoinQuest (Chris)
thanks for your answer. that's good to know. - adam
I found a coin that says 1966 for the issue date but in the stars it says 1974. Is this worth anthing? - naval
You have a low-value coin that was issued in 1974. This page gives an overview for all dates. 1974 is a common date. - CoinQuest (Andrei)
Hi I found old una presta coin 1947 issued in 1956,but it's in bad condition but also I can see the both dates.Does it worth something?Thanks.
It's a better coin, so it still has value. It's hard to say how much it's worth without seeing the coin - but yes, it is still worth something. - CoinQuest (Todd)
I got two 1 pesetas, one 1966 and 1969 and the other 1975 and 1978. How much are they worth?
Please read the page. - CoinQuest (Paul)
I have a 1963 with a 19 in the first star and second is absent anything. What does this mean?
