We are offering an 1846 IJ Chile gold 8 escudos. This coin is 87.5% gold and weighs 27 grams. This coin has some light wear and some minor planchet flaws.
Gold coins were issued in denominations of 1⁄2, 1, 2, 4 and 8 escudos, with the 2 escudos coin known as the doubloon. Between 1809 and 1849, coins denominated as 80, 160 and 320 reales (de vellon) were issued, equivalent, in gold content and value, to the 2, 4 and 8 escudo coins. Most were minted in Madrid, marked with a superscripted M or in Seville bearing an S below and left of the Royal Coat of Arms. The mintmaster's initials appeared on the opposite side.
