5 centimos 1937, iron.
2 centimos 1904, bronze, weight - 1,9 g., size - 20 mm, mintage - 10000000 pcs. Engraver: Bartolome Maura y Montaner. Such coins were released at 1904 and 1905. Demonetized at October 29 1941.
The 1904 issues, like the coin you have, have "04" in the star. But coins minted in 1905 (about 3.1 million) and 1906 (about 1.9 million) all say "1905" and "05" in the star ...
The orientation of the arrows, by the way, is quite interesting. That symbol - yoke and arrows - refers to Ferdinand and Isabella who used it (see here). In the 1930s the Falange adopted that symbol, and Franco then used it as the symbol of the only party that was allowed during his regime. The first version of this coin had arrows that, for whichever reason, pointed down. Production had begun in early 1951 and had to be interrupted after two months; then the arrows were modified.
