Mexico 1890Go peso oro rev DSLR.jpg

This specimen is a somewhat available 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. The 1890-Go is not readily available but is much more often seen than the 1890 issue from Mexico City.

Recorded mintage: 1,915 pieces.

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

Catalog reference: KM 410.3.
