 Spanish Cob Coins
Mexico City

Cob coins were minted at the Mexico City mint from 1536 through 1733,  when they were replaced by the machine struck milled pillar dollar that first saw production in 1732.  The Mexico mint was the first to produce hand struck cobs starting with the pillars type cob (1536-1572) and ending with the shield type cob (1572-1733).  Unlike the other New World mints, the Mexico mint never produced a pillars-and-waves cob, but did strike a hybrid transitional "klippe" or "square-cut" type in 1733 and 1734.  Dates first appeared on Mexico cobs in 1607, but are seldom visible.

Certificates of Authenticity accompany all Mexico Cob Coins.
