Mexico 5 and 10 Centavos 1864 to 1866
For a brief time between the first and second republics of Mexico, King Maximilian ruled the Mexican Empire, IMPERIO MEXICANO, and minted a few coins that are today highly sought by collectors. The silver 5 and 10 centavos are quite rare for small-denomination coins, and they command good collector premium.
