The Spanish Eight Reale was probably the most commonly circulated silver coin in Colonial America. Because of an extreme shortage of small silver currencies, the Eight Reale coin was often cut into pieces or "bits". This coin is appropriate for both 18th century and early 19th century reenactment, as it was considered legal tender in the US well into the mid-19th century. This quality reproduction set includes one complete coin, one four-bit, one two-bit, and two one-bit pieces, as well as an informational card explaining the coin's history. Cast in Lead-free pewter from an original specimen and cut into bits here in our workshop.

Love using this replica!
My students love learning about how the Spanish Real was exchanged in the American Western Territories in the early to mid 1800's. They also learn about fractions with this coin. Thanks! Review by Andrea Victoria (Posted on 2/13/2018)
