Mexico 1809 2 reales rev DSLR.jpg

This specimen is one of a series minted 1809-11 in Mexico City during the reign of Ferdinand VII. It uses the "imaginary bust" as Ferdinand, languishing in a French prison, was not available to have his portrait taken. The date is rather scarce; the SCWC prices the type at about double the preceding type of Charles IV. Assayer TH is recorded for 1804-1811.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 6.77 g, .896 fine silver, .196 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: Cayón-15393, KM 92.
