Potosi, Bolivia, medallic 2 soles, (1855), woman and baby / temple, PCGS AU details / cleaning, ex-Whittier. Burnett-unl (obv 74, rev 46); Fonrobert-unl. Obverse with standing, helmeted woman offering baby to radiant cross in sky to left, her feet trampling a dragon above F * ARAMAYO, all within legend SIN RELIGION NO HAY PATRIA NI ESTA SIN MORALIDAD.; reverse with radiant temple inside legend AL SER SUPREMO QUE SALVO A BOLIVIA with EN 6. DE STBRE/F / DE 1850/2. in exergue. Very bold strike with choice, bright luster and only the faintest of hairlines. Note: This medal should be attributed to 1855 because the obverse design is known for that year whereas the 1850 date on the reverse (engraved in 1852) is known to be a tribute to the date of Belzu's attempted assassination. Pedigreed to the Whittier collection (stated on label). PCGS #32915188.
