Note: 'Print date' is taken from the American Bank Note Company records: 'Book date' is the date put into circulation according to the bank's records. The 'Other date' is the date when Cuellar's facsimile signature was addedAGN, Antiguos Bancos de Emisión, Actas de Banco Minero, libro 1, 28 February 1888 to 5 January 1899.

The 25c face, back and tint plates were engraved on 24 July 1888ABNC. They were cancelled on 13 April 1932 .

By 1895 Limantour,  the Secretario de Hacienda, wanted to reduce the amount of low denomination ($1 and less) banknotes in circulation to restore the position of (and give a use to) silver. On 8 March Enrique Creel wrote to him agreeing with his objectives and pointing out that the Banco Minero had been withdrawing 25c and 50c notes for some time, but asking to be able to replace damaged  $1 notes with new ones, and to issue $5 and $10 notes in place of $1 onesCONDUMEX, Colección José Y. Limantour, carpeta 16, legajo 4229.

The Ley General de Instituciones de Crédito of 1897 prohibited the circulation of notes of values less than $4 and so all these 25c notes will have been withdrawn. However, 14,005 notes were still recorded as outstanding in November 1913.
