Aurelio Alvarado Rovira was born in 1858 in Dolega, Panama.
His parents were Adolfo Alvarado and Louisa Rovira. He married
Calizta González. They moved to Alto Lino and together had 14 children.
They lived in a wood house with a dirt floor and thatch roof. Working hard,
Aurelio founded coffee finca "La Pandura" and two farms where he raised cattle.
Aurelio died in Boquete in 1940.
The town of Boquete is
in the mountains of Chiriqui province, where the climate is cooler
than at sea-level. Coffee, oranges, flowers and other agricultural products are
grown in the region surrounding Boquete.
This token is almost identical to several other Boquete finca tokens such
as the Sittón and Castillo token, the Segundo Díaz token, the Emilio Kant
token and the Nemesio Ledesma token.
It is known that the Ledesma token was manufactured in the United States.
Since Sittón and Castillo did business with United States merchants, perhaps
they found the token manufacturer in the United States and placed orders for
themselves and the other four coffee growers.
