David Lisot alerted me to a couple of recent books on Mexican numismatics that we haven't discussed yet. Look for his video next week from the recent Texas Numismatic Association Convention. I reached out to author Greg Meyer and he kindly provided this information. Thanks.
Federal Republic Copper was written with Ricardo de Leon Tallavas and relates how the history behind the copper coinage of the Mexico City mint in the colonial period informs the first republic Mexico City copper coinage of 1829-1862. It has high resolution black and white photos of die varieties of each year and denomination.
This book discusses the New Spain and first Mexican Republic fiat currencies of copper. Specific focus of coin analysis is of the Federal issues from 1829-1861. Varieties are pictured and discussed in detail.
