1937 Was a Very Bad Year for this Coin
The 1937 Euzkadi (Basque Country) 1-peseta coin minted in Brussels, Belgium has a mintage of 7,000,000. The coin is struck in nickel, weighs 4 grams, and is 22mm in diameter. The obverse device portrays a bust of Lady Liberty wearing a Phrygian Cap. The legend, “GOBIERNO DE EUZKADI” is properly translated, “Government of Basque Country.” The AB monogram underneath the obverse bust is for engravers, A. Bonnetain and A. Everaerts. The reverse device features a closed wreath with the value 1 peseta and the date 1937 in the middle. On April 1, 1939, the day the nationalists took Spain and the civil war ended, the 1937 Euzkadi 1-peseta was demonetized.
