    Seeking contract of US Mint in Philadelphia produced gold coins for Mexico

    Patrice Robitaille Newbie

      Greetings, I am looking for the contract whereby the U.S. Treasury under Leslie Shaw in January 1906 agreed to have the U.S. mint in Philadelphia produce gold coins for the Mexican government. How many coins it promised to produce for how many months? And how did the Mexican government pay for this?  I found information on the Mexican side, but it did not have enough detail.  Thank you for any suggestions.
