Description: A beautiful silver crown size coin from the Guatemala. This is the 1894 one or un peso coin. The coin displays justice seated facing left with cornucopia in one hand and a staff in the other on the obverse. The obverse has the legend "REPUBLICA DE GUATEMALA UN PESO" surrounding justice. The reverse shows the fineness of the silver in the coin (0.900) and the date of issue (1894) under a scroll with a bird (Quetzal) on top of it with swords and guns behind it all surrounded by branches.

Size and Weight: Coin weighs ~25 gm of 0.900 silver and is ~37 mm in diameter.
References: It is KM 210.
Condition: I would grade the coin as lustrous extremely fine or much better with all the details being well preserved. The high points in the coin show wear (see the bird on the reverse and the hair of Liberty on the obverse) and loss of details and the coin has a large amount of light scratches in the fields and a few bag marks. Be that as it may the coin is beautiful, great looking with nice eye appeal. It would make a great addition to your collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
