Mexico 1 Centavo 1869 to 1898
Check that date, Andy. It is probably 1898, not 1838. The first Mexican Republic (Republica Mexicana) was established in 1822, but they were still using old coin denominations of reales and escudos back then. The Second republic started using the centavos and pesos around 1870.
Coin: 8364 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
