This scarce coin was struck at the newly established emergency mint of Cuzco, commissioned during the Guerra del Pacifico (War of the Pacific). The mint lasted only 2 years, and crudely produced just two denominations- which saw heavy circulation. As of late, more examples of the 1/2 Dinero appear to be available in the market place.
