The Gold Escudo was a Spanish colonial coin that circulated widely in the Americas and beyond. The Mexico City Mint, established in 1535, was one of the oldest and most prolific mints in the New World. The Escudo was part of the currency system that facilitated trade and commerce in the vast Spanish Empire.

The obverse of the coin typically features the bust of the reigning monarch. For the 1785 Escudo, this would be King Charles III, depicted in armor.

The reverse side usually displays the Spanish coat of arms, surrounded by the Golden Fleece and other heraldic symbols, representing the monarchy's divine right to rule.
