Mexico Durango 1/4 Real 1866
INDEPENDENCIA Y LIBERTAD means Independence and Liberty on your old 1/4 real coin from the State of Durango (Estado de Durango) in Northern Mexico. It seems there is renewed interest in collecting old coins from the various state-run mints of Mexico, and that drives up value. There are hundreds of unique types of these interesting coins, and that challenges collectors to assemble a complete set.
Coin: 6411 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
