    I see some 5 bolivares have been posted already, so here is the progenitor -- the venezolano. In 1872 the Venezuelan currency was renamed to the venezolano, subdivided into 100 centavos. The silver venezolano was issued for just one year in 1876. Venezuela joined the Latin Monetary Union in 1879 and changed the currency to the bolivar, with the crown sized silver coin issued as 5 bolivares.

    I got around to photographing my Potosi, Bolivia 8 reales, Ferdinand VII, assayer J. This is the rare single assayer for 1825. The double assayer JL, is very common.

    This coin is probably an EF in grade, with some fairly minor edge flaws on the reverse.

    KM 84

    26.81 grams

    Note: This coin was struck in the year of Bolivia's independence from Spain, which occurred on August 6, 1825. In some ways this coin could be considered a republican coin, as the dies for the 8 soles with Simon Bolivar on the obverse were not available until 1826.

    Very nice!

    That single assayer date is much rarer than 1825.
