This date, struck at Mexico City in 1874, is not accorded a premium in the SCWC but is likely to be scarce. Mexico City is the commonest mint for this type, 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.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

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

Catalog reference: KM 410.5, Fr-157.
