I found these old coins while on vacation in Teocaltiche and Jalostotitlán, Jalisco last year. I think this is one important subject that we have not talked about in the forum, MONEY! The coins are located in the John Gonzalez file.

John,

How did you find the coins? Did you buy them or excavate them? Was the square coin part of the common currency or was it manufactured by and for the use of one individual or by the state of Zacatecas. Did you get any historical background regarding these coins? Very interesting photos and new topic for discussion.

I moved the coins to the Albums area of the the New site. Look in the
folder called "John Gonzalez". . .John I hope you don't mind but I added
some pictures of my own. John's pictures are the two that are 4 coins in
a row. My pictures are of a 1793 1/2 Real coin that I bought because my
GGG grandfathers were born in 1793 and my GGGG grandparents: Justo
Puente and Josefa Sanchez were married in that Year as well in
Sombrerete, Zacatecas. I only own the 1793 coin. the 1780 and 1798 are
shown only so you can get an idea of what the coin looked like new. Of
course the 1780 was different in that it showed a different King and the
1798 was different as well, but they give you an idea.
