Announcing the New 2015 Mexican Paper Money Release
The currency market has changed enough over the past several years to warrant the publication of a new edition of the book. We expect to spend the next six months gathering data with the intention of publishing the 2015 edition late this year. This edition will be different in that it will be published in a digital version only.
The first task is already underway, which will be to gather as much information as possible in order to make the 2015 edition as complete as possible and we want you to help.
While the first catalog fulfilled its ambition to be the authoritative listing of all Mexican paper currency, there were omissions and some duplications and errors did creep in. This is your chance to help us correct any errors, and to improve the visual impact of the catalog.

Lightly tones, only 1 PCGS graded higher (Feb 2014)
Rare pattern peso of Emperor Maximilian. This patter can be easily differentiated from the regular issue by it's small letters in the legends and it's mirrored fields. This pattern is seldom offered and is always in demand. An NGC62 example was last sold May of 2008 for over $6,000 by Goldberg. Our NGC63 has a nice strike with light toning over mirrored fields. With patterns raising sharply over the past several years ours is very affordable at $7,900.
GIII c/M on Chile, 1794 So RD 8R.
Very scarce Santiago undertype.
Flashy luster, slightly off center strike.
A commonly counterfeited type, this cast silver piece issued under General Morelos exhibits sharp details and a pleasing even coloring.
The extremely rare first date of gold Colonial issues from the Potosi mint. Good luster and strike and perhaps the 2nd finest of the 5 or 6 confirmed examples of this key and historically important date.
Scarce Maximilain issue, this piece features excellent details with considerable remaining luster. Strike-throughs visible in the field in front of the bust and around “20 Pesos” on the reverse. One year type and the only imperial denomination issued in gold- popular as such.
Very rare Haitian holey dollar with palm tree counterstamp. Price upon request.
The first of two years when pesos were issued by the Mexico City mint during the short-lived Maximilian empire, this example is bright and well struck with satiny luster. A popular type, among the finest available from any of the three mints of issue with only eight pieces graded higher at NGC.
A scarcer date for the low relief star type, this piece exhibits flashy cartwheel luster, bright in the center with light golden peripheral toning.
8 Reales 1811 RM, NGC F15, KM#181
Although lacking the date, this is a superb strike of the rare provisional issue of Nueva Viscaya (Durango). To our knowledge, only 3 well struck presentation specimens of this 1 year type exists and any of these would set you back $50,000 or more. Unfortunately, Krause has pictured one of these presentation specimens while listing price for the production strikes. Ours is better than 90% of these at a small fraction of presentation money.
The Caballito is the first new peso issued after the Currency Reform of 1905 and the only 20th century Mexican coin minted in .90277 fine silver- the same specifications as the earlier issued Republic 8 reales and pesos. A popular design, this example is frosty and lustrous with light golden peripheral toning, including iridescent blues at date.
Probably the most famous and important of all Latin American Republic Crowns, the 1828 “COQUIMBO” is the key to any type set and would certainly be the centerpiece of any collection lucky enough to possess it! Our example is one of the finest in private hands (< 10 examples) and comes with a wonderful pedigree. Ex Schuckmann, Karon, Craig and Canaparo, this example is choice, totally original and wonderfully toned. The Millennia specimen sold for $138,000 in 2008. Ours is more reasonably priced.
