Spain 1 Peseta 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 artwork is nice, and they are basically modern coins, so they are not difficult to find. The mintage is fairly small, which means collector value starts to kick in early. Compare these two mintage figures:
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
1947 una peseta coin with 19 50 in the stars,but in bad condition. Found at your site.
any guess? - naval
On this coin are two stars. In the first star is written 19, the first two digits of the year, and in the second star is written the other two digits of year. So your coin is dated 1950. In bad condition it would be worth less than $1 US dollar. - CoinQuest (Andrei)
Sorry,but looks like I have misunderstood: from your coin description i assume the coin is authorized in 1947 and issued in 1950-which shows a value of $ 500-(albeit in perfect condition).
Could you pls clarify?
Thank you for your diligence and assistance.
Yes, Naval the coin is authorized in 1947 and issued in 1950. The catalog value for this coin goes like this:
worn: $5 US dollar approximate catalog value, but you can see the date in stars 19 50
average circulated: $10
well preserved: $50
fully uncirculated: $500 - CoinQuest (Andrei)
