Coins of Mexico
Mexico, War Of Independence, Morelos, 1813

|Mexico|, |8| |reales|
José María Morelos was a Roman Catholic priest and Mexican revolutionary leader who led the Mexican War of Independence after the execution of Miguel Hidalgo in 1811. Morelos was captured by the Spanish royalist military, tried by the Inquisition, defrocked as a priest, and executed for treason in 1815. His lieutenant, Vicente Guerrero, continued the war for independence. Morelos is a national hero in Mexico and considered a successful military leader despite being a priest. The state of Morelos and city of Morelia are named after him. Morelos has been portrayed on the 50-peso note since 1997, and on 1-peso coins during the 1940s, 1970s and 1980s.
