The Colombian mints of Cartagena and Santa Fe de Bogota
The province, later the viceroyalty, of the New Kingdom of Granada struck gold cobs at two mints. The officina of Cartagena struck gold two and one escudos from 1625 to 1635. The mint of Santa Fe struck gold in 1622 and from 1627 to 1756. Before the 1740’s Santa Fe struck only one and two escudos. In the 1740’s Santa Fe began to strike small mintages of four and eight escudos.
