LONDON. 10 Shares of £10. black, red seal. #20000. No 5810-20. Heavy folds. Brown stain at the left border. Formed 1830 – the year that Venezuela separated from the collapsed state of Gran Colombia (today’s Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador and Panama). This copany was formed by British investors, as a partial successor to the similar Colombian Mining Association, formed 1824, to reflect the new political reality. These two companies, with others of similar names, were formed in the late 1820s and 1830s for mining in Peru and Chile, and later Brazil, by John Powles (c.1787-1867), and several others by other persons (a total of 74 such companies). There was a lot of speculation and even fraud in the promotion and operation of these companies, and most of them failed. Simon Bolivar, ‘The Liberator’, had various mining interests in the area at this time, with family holdings of gold and copper mines in Venezuela. First time in our auctions.
