Spain - 8 Reales - Carlos IV (1788 - 180:geek: Mexico. - T.H. - 1807. - Silver


Spain - 8 Reales Carlos IV (1788-180:geek: - Silver coin struck at Mexico's mint in the year 1807 by assayer T. H.

Obverse: ‘CAROLUS IIII DEI GRATIA 1807’ (Charles IIII by God's grace) inscription around a bust of the King, which is facing right.

Reverse: ‘HISPAN ET IND REX’, ‘Mo’ (mint) and ‘8 R · T. H.’ (assayer). (King of Spain and the Indies) around a crowned coat of arms with castles and lions with the pomegranate and coat of arms of the Bourbons, between two columns, in the columns volutes with inscription ‘PLUS VLTRA’.

Nice coin, Headhunter, a bit of interesting history of colonial money and the Spanish pieces of eight (8 Reales)

Thanks so much gentleman for the quick response and information.
This was found in a box of coins I was given and it looked interesting.
Where would one find a bezel pendant mount for a coin
