This date is a fairly common example of a type struck 1870-1905 at the Mexico City 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.

Recorded mintage: 2,000.

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

Catalog reference: KM 410.5, Fr-157.
