Central American Quarter Real Earrings Circa 1893

765-01242

These quarter real coins were minted in the Central American country of Guatemala. Guatemala was the seat of the Mayan civilization until the Conquistadors arrived in the 16th century and claimed Guatemala for Spain. Spain ruled the country until 1821 when Guatemala declared its independence from Spain and became a state in the Central American Republic. In the year 1840 Guatemala became truly independent as its own Republic. Although independent of Spain, this coin features a rampant lion, a mainstay of images displayed on Spanish coinage since the time of Ferdinand and Isabella. The obverse has two smoking volcanic mountains with a long rayed sun overhead. Dated 1888 Framing: 14kt
