Description

Mexican Beauty is the first book ever written exclusively about Mexico's Little Horse Peso. A long time favorite of collectors, the Caballito peso is considered one of the most beautiful coin designs ever created.

This comprehensive bilingual book includes complete information about the coin's designer Charles Pillet, its design elements, symbolism, date and die varieties, values and population of graded coins. Included are chapters on coin grading, toned coins, counterfeits and more. Printed in full color with hundreds of detailed photographs of some of the world's finest and most beautiful Caballito pesos. An essential volume for collectors of Mexican numismatics. A valuable guide book you will refer to repeatedly for information found no place else. Described as an "Important" "Landmark Work" by professional dealers of Mexican numismatics.

Mexican Beauty won the 2015 NLG (Numismatic Literary Guild) award for Best World Coin Book presented at the 2015 Chicago American Numismatic Association World's Fair of Money (see image of award).

In August 2016, Mexican Beauty won the Mexican Numismatic Society Awards Pradeau Book Award.  In giving the award to Mexican Beauty, the Society noted that "the investigation, study and conclusions involved are considered of great merit for the understanding of Mexican Numismatics."

CoinWeek Says:

It’s a solid and worthwhile effort on a worthy topic, written in English with a side-by-side Spanish translation provided by Roberto del Bosque, a coin dealer from the firm Mexican Coins and More of Brownsville, Texas.

For a self-published work, interested readers will find no fault in the quality of the presentation. Coin photographs are clear and in full-color. Archival photographs of important historical figures and other key works of the engraver are presented, and sections devoted to variety attribution and grading effectively convey the intended information.
