1979 Argentina 50 Pesos Coin

Coins-World | AC coin$

Argentina ran a military campaign through the Patagonian desert against local indigenous peoples from 1870 to 1884. The largest and definite conquest was fought in 1879.

Issued by Casa de la Moneda Nacional, Buenos Aires, Argentina ( BA 5 ).

This nicely minted coin commemorates the 100th anniversary of the "Conquest of the Desert" as celebrated from 1879-1979. The coin was only issued in 1979.Most coinage from Argentina is simply designed and issued within government standards. This is a beautiful exception though, bearing the depiction of a military man on horseback to acknowledge gallantry in historical terms.

In my own words.
