Comments

Although similar in design to KM#102, these .2, .3 and .4 coins were made by Loyalists in their region to show support for the Crown. So the design is but a mere copy of the Mexico City one.

  • KM#102.2 Has small bust (the one used in the coin sheet)
  • KM#102.3 Has large bust, wreath in head nearly touches top of coin, robes aligned with dot between GRATIA and 1814
  • KM#102.4 Has large bust but robes are aligned with "A" in GRATIA
