This first silver dollar of the Mexican Republic contains more silver than classic U.S. Mint silver dollars. For decades it was legal tender in the U.S.A. and continued to circulate informally - especially in the South and West - later in the 19th century. The dramatic Cap and Ray design adopted the liberty cap (symbol of hard-won freedom) used on early U.S. coins, and added intense rays as a passionate expression of freedom. Nice Very Fine quality.
