Mexico 1864P 10 centavos rev JS.jpg

This specimen is a scarce date of a series struck 1864 only at the Potosi mint. This ten centavos piece replaced the silver one real struck since colonial times. Several transitional designs were issued 1863-70, including this one by the Maximilian regime (note the crown on the eagle's head). It, in turn, was replaced by a ten centavos piece with a redesigned reverse in 1869.

Specification: 2.71 g, 0.903 fine silver, 0.078 troy oz ASW.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Catalog reference: KM 386.2.
