Mexico City Mint Spanish Silver 2 Reales Carlos & Joanna 1504 To 1556 6.6g Toned:
At sale is an authentic sixteenth-century solid silver cob coin struck at Mexico City during the reign of Carlos and Joanna, who ruled the Spanish Empire between 1504 and 1556, making this one of the earliest coins struck in America. I aquired this coin from a gentleman who lives in Barcelona, and I guarantee it to be an original coin, not a reproduction. It weighs 6.6grams, has a stable stress crack into the flan with typical uneven striking, and bearing an attractive old cabinet tone. It is 27mm in size (see U.S. quarter for scale), AssayerO, Calico type 87, No. 121. An unusually pleasing example of this desirable early American coinage. FREE SHIPPING in the United States, otherwise registered postage expense applies.
