BOLIVIA COMMEMORATES THEIR LOSS OF ACCESS TO THE PACIFIC

Set of 4 Bolivia 2 Bolivianos 2017, Loss of access to the Pacific
The War of the Pacific started as a dispute over the taxing of bird poop!  The war broke out in 1879 over a treaty dispute about Bolivia’s ability to raise taxes on a Chilean company mining bird guano in the Atacama Desert.  Chile defeated the combined forces of Bolivia and Peru.  Bolivia lost their corridor to the Pacific Ocean and Peru lost its southern tip to Chile. Since then the loss of the territories has been a rallying cry by politicians seeking to draw attention away from domestic problems.  In 2017 Bolivia released a set of four 2 Bolivianos commemorating the loss of their Pacific territory.  The 11-sided 2mm stainless steel coins have Bolivia’s arms on one side and the following designs on the other:  Genoveva Ríos was a young teen-age girl who bravely saved the Bolivian flag from Chilean troops.  Eduardo Abaroa is one of Bolivia’s foremost heroes in the war.  He died in the Battle of Topáter.  Outnumbered and low in ammunition, most of the Bolivian force withdrew, except for a small group of civilians led by Abaroa that fought to the end.  The Bolivian Colorados Regiment fought bravely in many of the battles of the war.   The Port of Cobija was Bolivia’s main seaport on the Pacific.  It was destroyed by an earthquake in 1868, destroyed again by a tsunami in 1877, annexed by Chile in 1884 and abandoned in 1907.

The Convertible Peso could be used to buy goods and services that were deemed to be "luxuries".  In reality that meant just about everything other than rice and beans.  This encouraged overseas family to send money to Cuba, yet allowed the government to keep all the hard currency.  We offer both sets of these distinct Cuban coins.  The regular Cuban Peso coins includes the aluminum 1, 2, 5, 20 Centavos, brass plated steel 1 and nickel clad steel 3 Pesos.  The centavo coins feature a star the reverse.

THE BIRD POOP TAX WAR  - THE WAR OF THE PACIFIC

It seems almost anything can trigger a deadly war.  The War of the Pacific, also known as "The Saltpeter War"  is an example of this.  In 1878 Bolivia decided to levy a new tax of 10 Centavo per hundred pounds on bird droppings (guano) mined by a Chilean company in Bolivia. Guano was an important source of nitrates used for fertilizer, gunpowder and explosives.  The tax violated an 1874 treaty between Bolivia and Chile, so Chile declared war on Bolivia in 1879.  Under the terms of a secret 1873 mutual defense pact Peru was obligated to come to the assistance of Bolivia.  By 1884 both Peru and Bolivia were defeated by the smaller, but better equipped and organized Chilean army. Over 25,000 men died in the conflict. As a result of the war Bolivia became a land-locked nation, losing its territory on the Pacific to Chile. Peru lost their southernmost territory to Chile and almost collapsed. The dispute between Chile and Peru was not finally settled until 1929, 50 years after the war started. Bolivia still today claims sovereignty over the territory it lost 140 years earlier.   The following  numismatic items are all related to The War of the Pacific.


PERUVIAN SILVER MEDAL CLAIMS PART OF CHILE!

Peru 1925 Recuperar El Morro (Recover El Morro Arica) MedalPeruvian dictator Augusto Bernardino Leguia issued this silver medalette as part of Peru’s Fiestas Patrias Great Military Parade Day in 1925.  The medalette calls for the return of El Morro Arica, which Peru lost to Chile, along with the surrounding territory, 45 years earlier in the War of the Pacific.  Since then the two nations had numerous unfruitful negotiations over the status of the territories.  Recovery of the lost territory had long been a rallying point for Peruvian politicians.  The obverse depicts the coastal mountain El Morro Arica. It is the most recognizable landmark in the area.  Above it is the legend "RECUPERAR EL MORRO"  (Recover El Morro) and "A.B.LEGUIA".    In exergue is the date of the event: "29 JULIO 1925"  The reverse has the legend "JUNTA PATRIOTICA NACIONAL".  In 1929 the two nations finally came to a formal agreement, El Morro and Arica province remained part of Chile.   The 22.8mm silver medal weighs 5.5 grams and was made with a small hole at the top in order to suspend it from a hanger or ribbon.  The medalette is Uncirculated, though may show some slight friction or bag marks.  It is an unusual and rarely seen piece.

In 2011 Venezuela issued a 25 Centavos for the 200th anniversary of the signing of their Act of Independence.  In 2010 it issued a 50 Centavos commemorating the 70th anniversary of its Central Bank.  Considering the severe inflation and economic mismanagement the country has experienced it would not seem to be an event one would want to commemorate.  The standard reverses are used on the coins which have the denomination and eight stars.   Both coins are nickel-plated steel.  Due to Venezuela's inflation the coins circulated only briefly and are worth far more as scrap metal than their face value, making them hard to find today.

2016 COINS OF VENEZUELA

Venezuela 2016 three coin set: 10, 50 amd 100 BolivareIn conjunction with the planned withdrawal 100 Bolivar note in December 2016, Venezuela introduced three new coins: the 10, 50 and 100 Bolivar dated 2016.  Also issued at that time were new high denomination banknotes. Due to of the inability of the government to get the coins to the banks and the rapid depreciation of the value of the Bolivar the withdrawal of the notes has been repeatedly postponed.  The three coins are struck in a magnetic alloy and have similar designs.   The obverses feature the Barre portrait of Simon Bolivar, which has been used on Venezuela's coins since 1873.  Behind him are three undulating lines representing the three stripes of Venezuela's flag.  The reverses have Venezuela's new coat-of-arms, the denomination and date.  Because of their lack of buying power and the economic collapse of Venezuela the coins rarely circulate and are difficult to obtain.

VENEZUELA 100,000 BOLIVARES INFLATION NOTE  

Venezuela 100,000 Bolivares 2017 banknoteVenezuela 100,000 Bolivares 2017 banknoteVenezuela introduced a new high denomination 100,000 Bolivares banknote in November 2017 in response to the countries hyperinflation brought on by the governments economic and political mismanagement.  The Simon Bolivar is on the front of the note in a vertical format, and Red siskin birds are on the back in a horizontal format.  The same design was used on the previous 20,000 Bolivares and 100 Bolivares notes, but in a different color.  In an effort to disguise the galloping inflation, the denomination is spelled out in words, rather than the full numerical value. The notes are apparently in short supply "due to a shortage of paper" according to the government.  The note is expected to be replaced soon as Venezuela recently announced that it will revalue its currency.
