Mexico 1891Ho 10 centavos rev JS.jpg

This specimen is a common date of a series struck 1874-95 at the Hermosillo mint. This ten centavos piece replaced the silver one real struck since colonial times. Several transitional designs were issued 1863-70, including one by the Maximilian regime, before settling on this type. It, in turn, was replaced by a ten centavos piece with a redesigned reverse in 1898 but the Hermosillo mint closed in 1895.

Specification: 2.71 g, .903 fine silver, .078 troy oz ASW.

Recorded mintage: 46,000.

Catalog reference: KM 403.6.
