Why add this 1863-Zs VL Silver 8 Reales coin of Mexico to your collection?

The "Cap and Ray" series of Silver 8 Reales was struck from 1822-1897, produced at 15 different Mexican Mints. Bearing the Mint mark "Zs," this 1863 release was struck at the Zacatecas Mint under the authority of an assayer having the initials "VL." Metallic purity of Mexico's coinage during this time period was measured by the system of dineros and granos, with twelve dineros indicating pure silver and each dinero divided into twenty-four granos. This 8 Reales is inscribed "10Ds.20Gs." confirming its purity as .903 fine silver.

Patriotically Themed Design

Featured on the reverse is a Phrygian cap inscribed with the word "LIBERTAD" surrounded by a pattern of jagged rays. Inscribed "8R.Zs.1863.V.L.10Ds.20Gs."

The obverse depicts a forward facing eagle standing on a prickly pear cactus while holding a snake in its beak, with a wreath below and "REPUBLICA MEXICANA" inscribed above. With the exception of 1864-1867, this image is a representation of the Mexican Republic's Coat of Arms used from 1823 until 1893.
