The 1930 5 Peso Uruguay Gold Coin is a collector’s dream, embodying both historical significance and rarity. Issued solely in 1930 to mark the centennial of Uruguay’s constitution, this coin features the visage of the nation’s founding father, Jose Gervasio Artigas. With a limited mintage of fewer than 100,000, this coin is not just a piece of history but also a valuable asset, making it highly sought after by gold buyers.


Key Features: 

  • Issued exclusively in 1930
  • Limited mintage of under 100,000
  • Contains .2501 Troy oz of actual gold content
  • Bears a face value of 5 Pesos backed by the government of Uruguay
  • Available in varied conditions of XF or better
  • Comes in protective packaging


The 5 Peso Uruguay Gold Coin was minted to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Uruguay’s constitution, a document highly revered and based upon the U.S. Constitution. Struck by the French Mint in Paris, the initial release consisted of just 14,415 coins, with an additional 80,000 coins reportedly released in the 1990s by the Argentine central bank. This limited mintage adds to the coin’s allure, making it a valuable addition to any collection.


The obverse side of the coin features a right-profile bust of Jose Gervasio Artigas, an army general widely regarded as the father of Uruguayan independence. The meticulous detailing of Artigas’ likeness adds a layer of historical depth to the coin, enhancing its appeal to collectors and history enthusiasts alike.


The reverse side is adorned with a radiant sunburst design, accompanied by a commemorative date marking the nation’s constitution. The face value of “5 Pesos” is engraved in the center, with the words “Centenario de 1830” elegantly positioned above the design field. This side of the coin encapsulates the national pride and historical significance of the 1930 5 Peso Uruguay Gold Coin.


With its limited mintage and historical gravitas, the 1930 5 Peso Uruguay Gold Coin transcends mere collectibility to become a tangible piece of Uruguay’s national legacy. Each coin, struck in Paris and bearing the visage of the nation’s founding father, is a golden echo of a pivotal moment in Uruguayan history. This is more than an investment; it’s a curated experience in gold, history, and national pride.
