In 1930, the French Mint in Paris issued a commemorative 5 Peso gold coin for the nation of Uruguay. The coins were struck with .2501 Troy ounces of .9167 gold content, a purity level not typically seen in coins of this era. The 1930 date mark was significant in Uruguay’s history as the 100th anniversary of the signing of its independent constitution, which was based on the principles of the US Constitution.

On the obverse of 5 Peso Gold Uruguay Coins is the right-profile bust of General Jose Gervasio Artigas, a national hero referred to by many Uruguayans as the father of the nation’s independence movement. He lived from 1764 to 1850 and is depicted here with engravings of “Republica Oriental del Uruguay” and “Artigas.”
The reverse face of 5 Peso Gold Uruguay Coins includes the date marks and commemorative language. The background has a beautiful sun rising with sunburst rays reaching out toward the edges of the design field. Engravings include ‘Centenario de 1830,” “5 Pesos,” and “1930.” Just 14,415 of these coins were originally issued in 1930, with an additional “withheld” allotment issued from the Argentine central bank in the 1990s.
