A gold double-escudo coin, or 'cob', struck in a South American mint by Spanish authorities. The coin is heavily clipped to the extent that the legends are entirely missing. However, the surviving types suggest it is probably a 2 escudo coin minted in the Nuevo Reino mint in Bogota, Columbia and probably struck during the reign of Charles II of Spain (B. Cook, British Museum, pers. comm.). The Habsburg arms on the coin suggest it dates prior to 1700 AD, perhaps c.1665-1700 AD.
