Spanish milled half real cross with lions and castles in the quadrants. Philip V became king of Spain in 1700 by virtue of the will of Charles II who died childless. Founder of the Spanish Bourbon dynasty, Philip’s chief interest was securing his claim to the throne of France. His reign is noted primarily for the governmental and economic reforms instituted by his French and Italian advisors. The silver coins of Philip V are distinguished from those of his predecessors by the addition of the Bourbon escutcheon, consisting of three fleurs de lis on a small shield superimposed on the center of the Spanish coat of arms.
