Mexico 1797 8 reales rev DC.jpg

Shown is an 1797MoFM eight reales, one of a type struck 1791-1808. Assayer FM is recorded for the years 1783-1801. The eight reales of Charles IV is the commonest Mexican colonial coin, rivaled only by the following eight reales of Ferdinand VII (1808-21). Mintages are not known but must have been in the millions to account for the number of survivors. This type is available in all grades although nice Uncirculated pieces can be expensive.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 27.07 g, .896 fine silver, .780 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: KM 109.
