For your consideration a rare revolutionary 2 pesos coin, struck for the Guerrero province of Mexico at the Campo Morado mint. Because of a shortage of silver during the Mexican revolution, the government of General Salgado (Emiliano Zapata) decided to add a grasp of gold (0.595 grams), which was equal to the missing silver (here around 5 grams) in order to keep the currency´s value in line. A beautiful typically weakly struck revolutionary issue and a great addition!

The Mexican Revolution (Spanish: Revolución mexicana) was a major armed struggle that started in 1910 with an uprising led by Francisco I. Madero against longtime autocrat Porfirio Díaz. The Revolution transformed itself from a revolt against the established order to a multi-sided civil war. After prolonged struggles, it produced the Mexican Constitution of 1917.

The State of Guerrero is a state in the southern meridional region of Mexico. With an area of 64,282 square kilometers (24,819.4 sq mi), it occupies about 3.3% of Mexican territory. It borders the Pacific Ocean to the south (500 km), Michoacán to the west (524 km), Oaxaca to the east (241 km), and Mexico State (216 km), Morelos (88 km), and Puebla to the north (128 km). Guerrero is named in honor of the second president of the republic, General Vicente Ramón Guerrero Saldaña (August 10, 1782February 14, 1831), a hero of the Mexican War of Independence.
