This crown is one of ten different coins issued as part of the Iberian-American series of commemorative coins, “La Nautica.” The collection is comprised of ten silver proof coins, depicting ships that made history in each country. This exclusive series, named “Encuentro de dos Mundos” (Meeting of Two Worlds), represents the union of the Iberian-American countries by sea. The adventurous spirit of those who sailed towards the American continent is recognized in this issue. The countries that participate in this series are: Argentina, Ecuador, Spain, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru and Portugal. Each coin is 40 millimeters in diameter and minted from twenty-seven grams of .925 fine silver. Would make a great addition to any collection of nautical or world coins.
