San Francisco Mint 1949 restrike of Mexico 1898 Peso

In 1949 the US San Francisco Mint restruck 2,000,000 copies of a Mexico Peso dated 1898 for use in China.

Here is my web page about these coins:

I believe that there were some previous posts here in 2004 about this coin.

Cool. The US mint also struck some of the Chinese 'junk dollars" (the ones with the sailing junk backed by the portrait of Sun Yat-Sen) with the Chinese dies for ol' Chiang's paymasters. I've never done the research to see whether the bullion came from US Treasury holdings, but have assumed that it did.
