The Gold Pesos from Cuba were a series of coin denominations issued over a two-year span in the early 20th century. In the early years of World War I, as gold was sinking in demand in Europe as a result of the conflict, the Cuban government turned to the United States for assistance in coining and releasing five new gold denominations. Now, 5 Peso Gold Cuba Coins are available to you for purchase online at Silver.com.

The Cuban peso was first issued as a banknote by the Spanish Empire specifically for use in Cuba. The denomination of the peso was set at an exchange rate of 1 Peso to 8 reales, the Spanish currency of the day. Starting in 1869, decimal notes in the Peso were issued with values against the centavo, with 100 centavos to each peso.

In 1915, the first peso coins were issued for Cuba by the United States Mint. The Philadelphia Mint struck cupro-nickel 1, 2, and 5 centavos coins for Cuba, 10, 20, and 40 centavos silver coins, a 1 peso silver coin, and gold pesos in 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, and 20 peso denominations. The gold coins were only issued in 1915 and 1916, with the 5 peso actually enjoying a higher mintage in 1916 than in 1915, the opposite of its popular 20 peso counterpart.

The obverse field of 5 Peso Gold Coins features a right-profile bust of Jose Marti, the essayist, poet, and journalist who led the call for independence from Spain until his death in 1895. The portrait of Marti is surrounded by inscriptions of the weight, date, and metal content, with the motto “Patria Y Libertad.”

On the reverse side of the 5 Peso Gold Coins is the Cuban coat of arms. The national coat of arms was adopted in 1906 and remains the only currently-used socialist nation coat of arms not to use any sort of communist symbolism.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
