Most of these are uncirculated, but some were passed hand to hand as merchants gradually began to accept fiat coinage.
On the obverse, the coin shows what appears to be a side view of a smelting crucible, surrounded by the legend “Case De Moneda De Mexico” from 7:00 to 5:00. The date is located about 8:00, written horizontally (while the other legend curves around the inside of the rim).
