Charles II, 1661–1700, King of Spain, Naples, and Sicily (1665–1700), son and successor of Philip IV. The last of the Spanish Hapsburgs.

 

Grano (2 tornesi)

1683

obv: CAROLVS II D G REX, bust of the king right; behind the bust AG/A; date below (.83.)

rev: SICILIAE ET HIERVSA, bipartite and crowned coat of arms

Ref. MIR, 306/8; Pannuti Riccio, 59

 

Mint masters initials:

AG = Andrea Giovane (mint master)

A = Marco Antonio Ariani (master of trial)

 

The omission of the first two figures of the date (i.e. 16) is a feature of the copper coins of this period.
