Mint History 

The Mexico City Mint was established in 1535 and is the oldest mint in the Western Hemisphere. The Spaniards, led by Hernan Cortez, conquered the Aztec city of Tenochtitlan in 1521, a city now known as Mexico City. The wealth of this land, called "New Spain" was gold and silver, and the Spaniards quickly realized that coins were the most efficient way of transporting their new found wealth back to Spain. This result is the creation of the historic Mexico City Mint. 

 

The Mexico City Mint also minted the historical eight-reales silver coin, which is where the terms two-bits, four-bits, six-bits, and eight bits originated. These coins were some of the world’s most used coins and were legal tender in the United States until 1857.
