HOUSED IN PRISTINE-SCRATCH FREE NGC HOLDER, COMPLETE WITH THE VARIETY LISTED ON THE LABEL.MINTED AT THE OLD SEGOVIA MINT, SPAIN. Reformed the operations of all mints in the Ordinance of 1730 , the most important monetary legislation since 1497. One measure permanently closed all of the mints - including the Old Segovia Mint - except Madrid and Seville, where all of the silver and gold coin would be struck, and the Royal Segovia Coin Mill, which would produce all of the copper coinage to be minted in Spain. Many historians have interpreted this order as the beginning of a decline in the Royal Mill, indeed from thence on it was called National Mint. The era of silver and gold coinage production in Segovia was over, and cincuentines and centenes were a thing of the past. Nevertheless, the king specifically stated in the 1730 Ordinance that this measure should not be misinterpreted as his desire to permanently close the Segovia Coin Mill. At the time of the first Continental Congress, most pistareens were worn old coins some already bearing the scars of over half a century of circulation. The upcoming Superintendent of Finance, Robert Morris, working a new plan, reported to the Continental Congress on May 3, 1779 the need for a new Pistareen. Thomas Jefferson, the former Governor of Virginia, once contemplated the invention of a new decimal coin worth a tenth of a dollar.
S everyday small change during his boyhood in colonial Virginia would have included many a Pistareen , and cut pistareen pieces. Jefferson went on, it would not be amiss to coin three more of silver, one of the value of five Tenths, or half a dollar, one of the value of two Tenths, which would be equal to the Spanish Pistareen.
