Ferdinand VI Reign 1746-1759
Coin Dated 1757-1751
Minted in Mexico City, Mexico

Pillar coinage began during the reign of the Philip V of Spain. They were minted from 1732 until 1772. “The Pillars,” used only on coins struck in the New World, represent the Pillars of Hercules (Straits of Gibraltar). They are also known as Spanish Milled Dollars because the power of the water or horse mills was used to turn the screws press.

The globes on the front of the coin between the pillars represent the New and Old World. The words ULTRAQUE UNUM (we are one) appear around the edge of the coin. PLUS ULTRA (there is more beyond) is engraved on the ribbons entwining the two pillars.

The reverse of the coin depicts the Spanish Coat of arms. It has three fleur-di-lis for the House of Bourbon and the Lions and Castles representing the Kingdoms of Leon and Castile. All of these coins have a safety edge to prevent shaving. Additionally, the mintmark is to be found on either side of the date.
