Mexico 1824Mo 2 reales rev DSLR.jpg

This type was struck at the Durango and Mexico City mints during 1824. During this period, the other branch mints continued to produce coins of the colonial type. numismatic authors have written panegyrics to the beauty of the "hookneck" design but it was abandoned quickly for the familiar facing eagle reverse used until the 1890's, most likely because the hookneck design struck up poorly.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 6.77 g, .903 fine silver, .195 troy oz AGW.

Catalog reference: KM 373.1.
