KM-94 variety, Philip V type. Struck at the Mexico City mint.
In 20+ years of concerted searching, this is the single nicest Pillar 4 Reales we’ve ever had the chance to buy, and it just happens to be this rare and seldom seen early issue.
Well made, with bold detail and good centering (compared to others of this type), beautifully lustrous, delicately toned and extremely eye appealing for a denomination that never, ever comes as such. Until now.
Ex Christie’s May 1985 sale of the Norweb Collection of Mexican and Latin American Coins, lot #191.
This coin is from the CRO archives and is not currently available for sale.
