In Catalonia, the peseta was subdivided into 6 sueldos, each of 4 quartos (also spelled cuartos), 8 ochavos or 12 dineros. Five pesetas were equal to one duro, which was itself equal to the Spanish 8 reales de plata fuerte (Spanish dollar). In the new, decimal currency, the peseta was worth 4 reales.
The name peseta reappeared in 1868 for the new Spanish currency. Its value was equivalent to that of the earlier peseta.
During the 1809-14 period, coins denominated in pesetas and quartos were minted in Barcelona.
