Now that's not to say the mintage numbers cannot be found, there are those who have such info. But back then the colonial mints didn't even keep track of the number of coins, they tracked the weight of silver, the number of marcs, that were minted at a given time, and into what denominations. For example, they were required to mint 68 reale coins from each marc of silver. And the smaller denominations changed somewhat proportionally, but not exactly so. What I'm getting at here is that once you have that info, you can then translate into the number of coins.
But if it's of any help to you, the coin you're talking about is a pretty common one which means it had a fairly high mintage.
