Mexico Coins

The Casa de Moneda, the Mexico City Mint, is the oldest continuously operating mint in the western hemisphere; it has been striking gold and silver coins since the 1,500s. Some of the first coins—Gold Escudos and Silver 8 Reales—were U.S. legal tender all the way up to 1857. Today, the Casa de Moneda strikes Gold and Silver Mint State Libertads and Proof Libertads.
