Heritage sale 3041, lot 31157
Mexico H3041-31157r.jpg

This specimen was lot 31157 in Heritage sale 3041 (Chicago, August 2015), where it sold for $705. The catalog description[1] noted, "Charles III gold Escudo 1779 Mo-FF AU55 NGC, Mexico City mint. The portrait is sharply detailed, with an even stronger reverse, complete with sparkling luster and attractive, golden color. From The Rudman Collection of Mexican Coins." All Mexican colonial gold may be considered scarce. This type, the third showing the bust of Charles III, was struck 1773-88 and is the first type that can be considered reasonably available. This type comes in two varieties; "inverted mintmark" (shown here) and "upright mintmark". The inverted mintmark variety prevailed 1773-1788; the upright mintmark appeared 1772-73 and 1788 only.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 3.38 g, .901 fine gold, .098 troy oz AGW.

Catalog reference: KM 118.2, Cal-657.
