    Re: gold coin!!!

    its commonly called Arras or "marriage money" -- in the latin marrige custom of mexico -- mexican brides are given 13 gold coins as "proof" from the groom that he will support her "for life" and work and be a good provider for her---- by accepting the money --- she accepts him as her "husband" and swears to be a good and loyal wife to him --these are modern "peso fantasy pieces" used to fill this custom in modern times -- they have about 1/2 a grams worth of 14 to 22 kt gold in them---or about 1 /100 th of a oz of pure gold by weight --so they are worth about $10 in gold melt value .---- with gold at 1000 per oz

    thus its not a "real" gold coin * from 1865

    I don't believe Mexico, under Maximiliano, ever issued a gold coin except a large (35mm) 20-peso piece.

    They are fantasy tokens and are listed in Krause. Many different varieities exist and in different metal combinations, 8K, 9K, 14K, gold plated, silver, silver plated, etc.

    Re: gold coin!!!

    please note --- in the ad that states it was obtained from a "estate" sale --(ie) a old lady died and her "wedding coins" went up for grabs -- the seller either doesn't know what these coins really are or is trying to mislead folks on purpose --which one ? who knows -- pleae note too these coins do not have a "value" marked upon them --and no coins were known to be minted of this type in 1865 in mexico -- they were 20 peso gold pieces made in 1865 but they are marked that -- plus these coins are clearly listed in coin collector books as "fantasy" coins / tokens

    if one can sell a $10 or so worth of gold "fantasy" coin for $40 plus several dollars for shipping -- one can clean up -- of the less knowledgible folks.

    however since you traded $5 in silver for $10 in gold you did ok.
