The exchange of the mexican currency for the provincial peso in Puerto Rico (1895-1896) and Bartolomé Maura y Montaner
Abstract. In this research, we have reconstructed a part of the monetary history of Puerto Rico in the late nineteenth century. Our object of study has been the problem of the Mexican currency that circu-lated in Puerto Rico and the provincial peso minted in the Fábrica Nacional de Moneda y Timbre in Madrid, to face this problem on the island (1895-1896). The provincial peso of Puerto Rico and the Exchange Note (Paper Money) used to carry out the exchange of the Mexican currency for the pro-vincial peso were designed by the great artist and most prominent Spanish engraver of his time, Don Bartolomé Maura y Montaner. During the initial investigation, we could locate the original design of the Exchange Note (Paper Money), and the number of exchange notes manufactured to facilitate this monetary exchange is evident (5,000,000). We dare to affirm that the Exchange Note has been the paper money with the shortest time in circulation in some territories or country (it circulated freely for 21 days).
