Spain, 1808

Citation: Platina española para Europa en el siglo XVIII, LF Capitan Vallvey (1994) 
"The French invasion of 1808 causes the destruction of Madrid's Casa de Platina, the disappearance of all the metal stored there, and independence of New Granada a few years later (in 1819) leaving Spain without possession of the platina mines."
