Summary: Carlos Holguín here explains and analyzes the equivalents of sterling pounds to Colombian pesos as they relate to bonds, their interest and amortization. These government bonds were intended to help relieve the external debt.
Historical Notes: Since the inception of Nueva Granada, its government struggled to manage its revenues in a way that allowed the nation to cover its internal and external debt obligations. During the 1860s the state created a number of financial mechanisms aimed at enticing more investors to “buy” the internal debt through bonds. In a bid to respond to its urgent need for cash and to maintain public order within the nation, the government floated bonds to manage the public debt.
