This first silver coin of the Mexican Republic contains more silver than classic U.S. Mint silver dollars. For decades it was legal tender in the United States and continued to circulate informally, especially in the South and West. The Mexican coat of arms is displayed on the obverse of the coin. On its reverse, the bold Cap and Rays design adopted the Phrygian cap, a symbol of liberty used on many early U.S. coins. Clearly detailed Very Fine quality.
