This specimen is a scarce date of a series struck 1870-1900 at the Guanajuato mint. Mexico City is the commonest mint, followed by Guanajuato, Culiacan, Zacatecas (scarce), Hermosillo (rare), Alamos (rare) and Chihuahua (rare). Even the common dates have low mintages but the type was widely hoarded, making it reasonably available today. Numerous date varieties exist.

Recorded mintage: 500 pieces.

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

Catalog reference: KM 410.3.
