Milled Bust Coins
Mexico City

Milled bust coins "bust or portrait dollars" were minted at the Mexico City mint from 1772 until 1821, when Mexico won its independence from Spain.  Like the milled pillar dollar, bust dollars circulated throughout the world, even serving as legal currency in the United States until 1857.   Mexico City coins are easily identified by their mintmark, an M with a small o above.

Certificates of Authenticity accompany all Mexico Milled Bust Coins.
