1 Nuevo Sol - Historic Railways
Series: Peru - Ibero-American Series
As with previous issues in this series, the complete set consists of seven coins and a commemorative medal, all minted in 925 thousandth silver. On this occasion, it is dedicated to the theme of "Historic Railways" and has a maximum mintage of 7,000 units. In 1992, fourteen Ibero-American countries agreed to mint a common coin, giving rise to the important cultural and numismatic project called the IBERO-AMERICAN SERIES. The unique feature of this series is that each participating country allows its national coat of arms to be reproduced on the coins of the other countries, something that had not happened throughout the twenty-five centuries of numismatic history.
