Greg Meyer forwarded this announcement of his upcoming book on the Mexican Republic one centavo coin.
I am putting the last wee bit of polish on a three year odyssey to
document the one centavo series of the Mexican Republic, 1841-1905. I
go into the history of the series beginning with the first patterns made
to the vagaries of revolt, drought and disease on the various mint
productions across the country. The book, The One Centavo of the
Mexican Republic, will be available at the end of this April.
It is 186
pages with black and white photos. All Dates and Mints are documented
and only one Date/Mint is missing a picture from the series, the 1875
Alamos centavo which only survives as a single piece in the Bank of
Mexico Museum. Collections from across the country and Mexico were
visited and studied. A wide literature search of both articles and
catalogs going back to the 1870's were examined and referenced by
footnotes. A bibliography of referenced works is included as well as
historiographic works and primary sources such as relevant decrees, laws
and contemporary newspaper articles.
