QUERY: DID THE SPANISH REALLY MINT LION DOLLARS IN MEXICO?
Ray Williams writes:
I would be very interested to hear if the Spanish actually minted Lion Daalders in Mexico. I had never heard of this and I wonder where Lee Hallman got his information, as stated in the August 9th 2009 E-Sylum.
Good question. It wouldn't be the first time a non-numismatist (or anyone for that matter) got a numismatic fact twisted. Can anyone set us straight? -Editor
