SILVER COINS OF VENEZUELA FEATURE SIMON BOLIVAR
This set of four attractive Venezuelan silver coins features a portrait of Simon Bolivar, who helped liberate South America from Spanish rule in the early 19th century, and after whom Venezuela named their currency. The reverse features the arms of Venezuela. The set includes the 25 Centimos, 50 Centimos, 1 Bolivar and 2 Bolivars dated 1960 or 1965 in Almost Uncirculated to Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins were some of the last to be struck to the standard of the Latin Monetary Union, a 19th century attempt to create a common currency for Europe and South America. The coins are all struck in .835 fine silver and the set contains slightly over a half troy ounce of silver.
