My first post here. I'm writing a story where part of the action will be in Spain (Galicia to be precise) and into Portugal.
It is set in the 1790's and I've googled under a heap of different combinations but have come up with very little.
Would anyone know what the currency in Spain and Portugal was during this time period, and what was the relative value of the currency? That is: what you could reasonably buy with it? Also what was in coins and what would have been in notes? If you know of a website with this information on it I'd eternally grateful.
