from the Stack's Bowers 2017 Collector's Choice sale, lot 72681
Mexico SB517-72681r.jpg

This specimen was lot 72681 in Stack's Bowers Collectors Choice Online Auction (Santa Ana, CA, May 2017), where it did not sell. The catalog description[1] noted, "MEXICO. Peso, 1894/3-GoR. NGC AU-58. RARE date, mintage of only 180 pieces. Sharply struck, lightly toned and quite attractive." This specimen was struck at Culiacan in 1893. 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: 180.

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

Catalog reference: KM-410.3.
