This specimen is the first date of a series struck 1870-1905 at the Mexico City mint. Mexico City is the commonest mint, followed by Guanajuato, Culiacan, Zacatecas (scarce), Hermosillo (rare), Alamos (rare) and Chihuahua (rare). Even the common dates such as this one have low mintages but the type was widely hoarded, making it reasonably available today.

Recorded mintage: 2,540.

Specification: 1.69 g, .875 fine gold, .047 troy oz AGW.

Catalog reference: KM 410.5.
