The location of the Belikio mint has been debated by the scholars. They believe it is in the south of the Suessetanian area, an area in the northern part of Spain close to the modern French border. While the silver coinage was used primarily for trade with their Roman counterparts, the bronze coinage was used for exchange between the cities.
