Why purchase a Mexico Gold 50 Pesos coin for your collection?
The Gold 50 Pesos coin was introduced by the Mexican Mint in 1921 in celebration of the Mexican Centenario, the 100th anniversary of Mexico's Independence from Spain. The coin, often called a "Centenario" was minted until 1931, and then again from 1944-1947. Nearly 4,000,000 50 Pesos gold coins were also struck between the years of 1949 and 1972, but were minted with the date of 1947. After the introduction of the gold Krugerrand in 1967, demand for the Centenario decreased, and minting of the coin was completely discontinued after 1972. The stunning Mexican 50 Peso face value coin has a diameter of 37mm, struck from an impressive 1.2056 Troy oz. of .900 fine gold.
