    In the case of those 2 céntimos coins, the "star date" system (that Spain used until 35 years ago) does not make much sense by the way. :) 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 ...

    This is one of the iconic coins that fascinated me as a young collector. I did not actually add one to my collection until recently. 1949 (1962)

    Nice coin, also because of the navy reference. :) 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. :)

    Thanks. I love the oft maligned Wiki site. A treasure trove of user friendly education.

    Some Falange Spanish arrows here...
