Horacio Morero, President of the Instituto Uruguayo de Numismática, submitted this summary of the contents of the latest issue of the
club's publication El Sitio. Thanks! -Editor
“El Sitio” N° 15 contains, in its 24 pages, an article on numismatic tokens, the chronicle of the 60th anniversary celebrations of the
Instituto Uruguayo de Numismática (IUN), information from different events and gatherings and also a long editorial written by the president of the
IUN, Horacio Morero, who has been director of the institution for eight years, this being his second term of four years, and is leaving that place of
honour with the new elections to be held next August 2015.
The cover of “El Sitio” N° 15 shows the pictures of the medal from the 60th Anniversary that was minted in the Tammaro house in Uruguay
in three metal versions: copper, plated copper and silver.
The numismatic article, written by Horacio Morero Ferrero, is related to the shearing tokens of the “Martín Chico” Ranch, a historical
“estancia” in the Colonia Department, in the west of Uruguay. “Martín Chico” was a Ranch belonging to the Bell family, immigrant from
Scotland that came with other Scottish people to Uruguay in the XIX century.
Among other relevant information contained in “El Sitio” to highlight to numismatic colleagues, friends and followers it is relevant to
mention: a reference note from a new numismatic book written by Hugo Mancebo Decaux “El exilio de Agustín Jouve y su familia en la ciudad
de Yaguarón 1848-1857”; the creation of a new social activity in the IUN called “El lunes de los socios”; a disertacion about Casino tokens
by Nicolás Santerini; the bonds issued in the “Jornada Uruguaya de Numismatica 2014”; and information about a Uruguayan Central Bank
project to issue in 2016 a new coin to commemorate the 200 years of the foundation of the National Library (Biblioteca Nacional).
