now that I look a little closer, the letters are a little different, the coin in the link says F.M. after the 2R, the one I have says P.R after the 2R

OK after a little more research I found that the P.R. is a mint mark, this one in particular was made in Bolivia from 1789 to 1790. This is my oldest coin I have detected so far. Just think was minted over 200 years ago just to find it's way to me.
