Why Add This MS61 1863-Zs VL Mexico Silver 8 Reales to Your Collection?

While there are many silver coins that have been issued by nations around the world, 8 reales silver coins from Mexico are among the most well-known. Many are familiar with these coins because of their historical significance and their wide use in trade during their time in circulation. The 8 reales coin offered here was struck at Mexico's Zacatecas Mint in 1863. The assayer's initials were VL.

Classic Mexican Design

On the obverse, an eagle can be seen on top of a cactus. It is balancing with one foot while it uses the other to hold a snake. A small wreath forms a border on the lower portion of the design and the upper portion is inscribed with "REPUBLICA MEXICANA."

A small cap is pictured at the center of the reverse. Many rays of light can be seen radiating from a point behind the cap. The date and face value can be found among the inscriptions on this side.


This silver coin was submitted to the Professional Coin Grading Service. The experts there found this specimen to be in uncirculated condition. It was assigned the grade of Mint State 61. There is just one coin graded finer (an MS62) at PCGS, and just four coins of this date/mintmark/assayer combination have been graded in total! This coin is quite scarce, especially compared to the grading populations for similar US coins.
