Thumbnail Filmstrip of 1897 Cuba Silver 1 Peso Souvenier Type I, PAT.97 AU Details Images
This is the Type I coin, with PAT.97 in scripted on neck, and wide date is the rarest of all varieties known of the 1987 Souvenir Peso. Issued in 1897
This silver (.900) Cuban coin was issued in the United States to collect funds
for the war against Spain. It shows Leonor Molina's profile on one side and
the Cuban Coat of Arms on the other. After the Republic was founded this coin
was accepted as currency in recognition of the faith and economic sacrifice of
those that bought it.
It is rated by NGC as (Almost Uncirculated) AU Details. It mentions "Cleaned" which is obvious, it is a beautiful very shinny coin, and "Corrosion" that we are unable to see with a magnifying glass.
