Mexico 1901-Cn Q peso
This specimen is a common date of a series struck 1873-1904 at the Culiacan mint. [[Mexico 1901-Mo M peso|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. Numerous date varieties exist; the catalog lists the 1901/0 overdate with no normal date.
Recorded mintage: 2,530.
Specification: 1.69 g, .875 fine gold, .047 troy oz AGW.
Catalog reference: KM 410.2.
