The history of Mexican Gold coins
These Mexican coins were minted at the mint in Mexico City, which was the first mint established in the Americas by Viceroy Antonio de Mendoza under a royal decree from the Spanish Crown in 1535. The first world coins produced by the mint were Spanish coinage such as the 8 Reales - or "pieces of eight" - which were made from Silver or Copper. Gold coin production at the Mexico mint did not begin until 1679 during the reign of the Hapsburg King Charles II. Mexican Pesos, such as these Gold coins, are descendants of this first coinage produced by the mint.
