From 1879 to 1884 Bolivia, Chile and Peru engaged in the War of The Pacific ("Saltpeter War") over control over huge piles of bird droppings (guano) which were mined to obtain nitrate used in gunpowder. Chile won, Bolivia became a land-locked nation, and Peru almost collapsed. During the war Peru issued special copper-nickel coins, which they called provisional money, in place of their usual silver coins. The coins were only minted in 1879 & 1880, but the 20 Centavos coin is much scarcer and only minted in 1879
