Scarce 1789 Mexico City 8 Reales of Carlos III

SOLD

Details

Mexico. 1789-FM 8 reales. Mexico City mint. Carlos III. AU-55 (NGC). The final Mexico 8 reales issued in the name of Carlos III, struck for just the first few months of 1789 before the news of the king's death on December 14, 1788 reached Mexico City. Far scarcer than other Carlos III issues of the 1780s, scarcer also than the 1789 and 1790 8 reales struck in the name of Carlos IV (or IIII) but depicting Carlos III. The most recent Calico book values 1788 8 reales at 80 euros but the 1789 Carlos III 8 reales at 300. This piece shows plentiful lustre on beautifully toned surfaces. The reverse is somewhat prooflike at the peripheries. Both obverse and reverse are a lively rich of gold, amber, rose, and pale green. A beautiful example of this scarce issue.
