Mexico 1914 peso
This specimen is the final and key date of the "Caballito" peso struck at Mexico City 1910-14. It is the last full weight peso from Mexico, ending a tradition going back to colonial times. The low mintage may be attributed to the chaos of the Revolution.
Record mintage: 120,000.
Specification: 27.07 g, .903 fine silver, .786 troy oz ASW. Designed by Charles Pillet of France.
Catalog reference: KM 453.
