Mexico 8 Reales 1824 to 1897
Hi Deb -- You probably have a well-worn 8 reales coin from the old Republic of Mexico.
If you have one of these, seek out a knowledgeable collector or coin dealer for an in-person appraisal.

I have mint mark Go 1881 SB is this coin of value? - Marc
Since your coin is not in our 'valuable' list on this page, it is not super-high value. Get yourself a coin catalog and look up your specific coin. Coin catalogs have 1000 times more information than this simple web site. You can usually find coin catalogs at your local library. You can buy them on Amazon. - CoinQuest (Paul)
Hello, I am trying to understand the texts on the coins, May I ask for some info, if its ok with you, - What is that text says about the coin? 8R Zs 1876 J.A. 10Ds 20Gs - thank you
Sir or madam -- It sounds like you are a collector or would make a good one. Your kind of curiosity is a sure-fire indicator that coin collecting is in your blood! 8R = denomination = 8 reales. Zs = mint producing coin = Tecas (there are many other mints, e.g., D Durango, Mo Mexico City, SLP San Luis Potosi, etc.). 1876 = date. JA = assayer's initials = mint official confirming validity of the coin. 10D 20G = purity of the silver = .9027 pure as described on the Numista web site. - CoinQuest (Paul)

This is one of the more common issues of these 8 reales. It's found in the catalogs under the shorter name '1874Zs JA', where the value is reported as about $30 USD when circulated, rising to $100 or above when absolutely, fully uncirculated. - CoinQuest (Chris)
hi i have a mexico 8 reales 1945
8 R.D.1845.R.M.40 D.20 G
I have a 1963 with mintmark 'o', republica mexicana 1 peso coin. What is the current price of this old silver coin?
I assume you mean 1863, not 1963. Back then the peso denomination was not used. This page shows 8 reales coins which are the closest to what you imply. The Mexican Republic started using the peso denomination in 1870. Our page on these coins appears at this link [Press Here]. - CoinQuest (Paul)
