    Rio de la Plata gold 8 Escudos 1833 RA-P AU55 NGC, Rioja mint, KM21, Fr-2, Onza-1556. Hailing from the highly demanded "Sun-Face" series, this example exudes a quality of preservation and eye appeal rarely seen with any gold issues of this period, much less this specific type, which is rarely offered to collectors. The strike is uniform across each face, with a particular boldness of strike on the obverse, that surface marked by delightful touches of orange and red within the sun's rays. An important type for collectors of South American coinage and an offering that would be difficult to improve upon visually.
