AGUSTIN I Agustin Iturbide, originally a royalist general, headed the Mexican regency established by him after the final break with Spain in 1821. He himself was proclaimed emperor of Mexico in May 1822. Taking a leaf from the royalists' book he caused over thirty types of proclamation medals to be issued for himself, in gold, silver and bronze, many in the names of the cities as those of Ferdinand VII. Most of Agustin's medals are represented here.
Silver, 1821, Mexico City, 39 mm., crowned eagle perched on cactus, rev. seven line inscription, corded edge (G.5a), minor hairlines, otherwise uncirculated
