Mexico Ferdinand VI 1758 MO- MM Gold 8 Escudos NGC AU55 Mexico City Mint. 8 Escudos, 1758 Mo-MM (Mexico City). Draped and stylish Mexican Bust type of Ferdinand VI right. Reverse: Crowned House of Bourbon Coat of Arms. Devices softly lustrous and cameo-like. Extraordinarily clean fields for these large gold coins. Rare in this grade, conservatively graded in our opinion by NGC. Mexico City, the second largest city in the world today, has a long and important history. It was the capital of the Aztec Empire, and was then known as Tenochitlan. It was founded in 1325. It is situated at an altitude of 7,349 feet, which guaranties its mild climate. Mexico City is located on a small island, and the Aztecs had built numerous causeways connecting the central island of the city to the shoreline. These causeways are the origin of the modern day calzedas which are some of the main avenues of the city today. Ferdinand was one of the few rulers who actually loved his wife. Maria Barbara of Braganza was his loyal and loving companion for 29 years. When she died in 1758, Ferdinand refused to dress or shave, and wandered around his park in a nightgown, refusing to conduct matters of state. He died almost exactly one year later.
