10 pesos: La Santísima Trinidad

Series: Cuba: Ibero-American Series


The obverse of the coin portrays La Santísima Trinidad, a ship built by D. Mateo Mullán. It weighed 2163 tons and had an overall length of 213.8 feet and a beam of 58 feet. The best woods from the island's forests were used in its construction: mahogany, júcaro, caguairán, and it became a symbol of the rebirth of Havana in the anxious days of the siege of 1762.
