History


The Cross of the Battle of Moquehua was instituted by the Spanish Kingdom to reward the Peruvian royal forces who defeated the Chilean and Peruvian revolutionary troops at the Battle of Moquehua on January 21, 1823.

The Cross features an obverse inscription that translates to "Battle of Moquehua," and a reverse inscription that translates to "Year of 1823."
