I am pretty sure those with extensive knowledge will be scratching their heads at the question. I was reading an older work(19th Century. I was informed by it that Spain( the Northern Christian Kingdoms) largely missed out on the Carolingian monetary reform and stuck with a, mostly unadulterated Roman system. So the Spanish ended up using eighths while the rest Of Europe was using 12ths. Is that modern understanding? (It was "news" to me)

Nor I, I am deeply suspicious about the veracity of the claim

You would think if it was the case it would be mentioned in other references.

Which 8/1 standard is the author referring to? The first coins of the Christian kings in Spain were dineros and oboles on the Carolingian standard. The dollar of 8 reales was a late (1497) invention.
