1930 Uruguay 10 Centesimos {1-year issue}

front: Republic allegory (as Marianne) facing right, MORLON behind neck. Country name and year as circle around.

The 1830 constitution has been regarded as Uruguay's most technically perfect charter. Heavily influenced by the thinking of the French and American revolutions, it divided the government among the executive, legislative, and judicial powers and established Uruguay as a unitary republic with a centralized form of government. The bicameral General Assembly was empowered to elect a president with considerable powers to head the executive branch for a four-year term. The president was given control over all of his ministers of government and was empowered to make decisions with the agreement of at least one of the three ministers recognized by the 1830 constitution.


Engraver: Pierre-Alexandre Morlon

back: Puma walking left in front of sun rays above value, mintmarks on sides
