Mexico 1897Ga 10 centavos rev JS.jpg

This specimen is a common date of a series struck 1869-97 at the Guanajuato 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. An overmintmark, Go/Ho, and an overassayer, R/G, are recorded for the date but awarded no premium.

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

Recorded mintage: 205,000.

Catalog reference: KM 403.5.
