First note from Argentina
Entry posted by ColonialCoinsUK ·
Not only is this another country from Latin America to add to the collection but it attracted me for a couple of reasons. First the cancellation holes are square - I thought that was a bit different as most seem to be round.
In my collection I have a Guatemalan 1 peso with Cybele riding a chariot being pulled by two lions whereas this time she seems to have gained a passenger in Mercury, which is no doubt why it now takes four lions to do the hard work!
It is no surprise to see Mercury on a banknote as he is the god of commerce however it seems that his chariot is usually pulled by two roosters - I wonder if this is on a banknote anywhere? He has also regained the caduceus from the Mother Goddess.
