Chile Peso Gold Coins for Sale
The peso has been the currency of Chile since 1817. In 1835 copper coins were added and in 1851 the peso was subdivided and pegged to equal the French franc. A gold standard was adopted in 1885 to peg the British pound. Various editions have been struck throughout history with different weights, denominations in silver and gold, changing motifs, and values. The 2008 series of the 50 peso coins have the country name spelled wrong, and the national mint chose not to recall them. The current peso has been in circulation since 1975.
