History of European Gold Coins
Minted primarily from the early 1800s to the 1930s, these European coins were used heavily as currency during the times of their issuance, so specimens surviving in uncirculated or mint state condition today are relatively scarce. These classic Gold coins have been universally accepted for hundreds of years and have centuries of European heritage.
History of Mexican Gold Coins
Established in 1535, Casa de Moneda de México is the oldest mint in the Western hemisphere and is responsible for the production of Mexico's coinage. Throughout its history, the mint has produced many iconic coins that have see widespread usage throughout the world. The 8 Reales, produced up until the turn of the 20th century, was one of the most widely used Gold coins in the world and was even commonly used in American commerce before the establishment of the U.S. Mint. In the early 1900s, the denomination of Mexican Gold coinage switched from Reales to Pesos. The design of the 50 Peso coin, first released in 1921, was so popular that it was used on the first Gold bullion coins produced by the Mexican Mint, the Libertads.
