Mexico 1882Mo peso oro rev DSLR.jpg

This specimen was struck at Mexico City in 1882. The overdate shown, 1882/72, is the only variety listed; no normal dates are recorded. 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: unknown but likely about 1,000.

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

Catalog reference: KM 410.5, Fr-157.
