1718 J Spain 2 Reales Segovia Mint State (MS) 61 NGC Certified
Spanish coins are some of the most beautiful and historic coins from Europe. In fact, I would say that Spanish coins, especially prior to the rise of the 8 Reales in the USA - exhume a certain majestic color about their design and artistry that cannot be found from other European Kingdoms. This rare 1718 J Royal 2R is unusual in mint state with no problems such as cleaning. In fact this coin is only 1 of 2 in its grade and only one other is currently graded higher. Spanish coins are gaining in popularity due to their legal tender status in the USA up until 1857 - when Congress repealed laws allowing foreign coins legal tender in the USA. Today these coins our tough to come buy in this pristine condition.
