$22,613.00 USD

The 4 Escudos coin was part of the Spanish colonial coinage system used in Peru during the mid-18th century. This period was marked by the reign of King Ferdinand VI (1746-1759), a time when Spain was consolidating its power in the Americas and dealing with various European conflicts.

The obverse of the coin features a Jerusalem cross with lions and castles in the quarters, symbolizing the union of Castile and León. The design is surrounded by the inscription "ANNO" and the date, indicating the year of minting.

The reverse side of the coin displays the Pillars of Hercules with a banner reading "PLUS ULTRA," which translates to "More Beyond." This imagery represents Spain's imperial ambitions and its reach across the Atlantic.
