Style: Between 1711-1713, Mexico designed two new reverse types for their gold coinage. Of the two, this one, was very unique in that it had a cross-crosslets design, and in place of the typical Fleur de Lis, replaced it with ermines! This was unique, as the ermine had never been used on any coin struck in the Spanish colonies before this point. In heraldry, the ermine is a type of “fur” representing the winter coat of a stoat (a type of weasel), with white fur and a black tipped tail. It's conventional heraldic representation has three tufts at the bottom, which converge to a point at the top which is attached by three studs. This device was common during the reign of the Catholic kings; Ferdinand & Isabella. But was always used as a small device. Whereas the Mexican gold escudos of 1711-1713, boldly used them as central devices, inside a cross that had also only previously been used as a small device, typically as the final stop within the reverse legend on gold and silver coinage. This beautiful design, was wrapped inside a "celtic" cross like, quatrelobe. With four crescents connecting to four bars.
