Cuzco Coin Mint

In 1698, during the reign of Carlos II, gold coins were minted in Cuzco exclusively with values of 1 and 2 Escudos (Shields). These coins were identical to those produced in Lima since 1696.

The only difference is that the mint mark is the "C" for Cuzco instead of the "L" for Lima.
