The Centenario

The Mexico Gold 50 Pesos coin is known as the Centenario because it commemorates the 100th anniversary of Mexico’s independence from Spain in 1821 and was first minted in 1921. It sports a beautiful obverse design known in Mexico as El Angel, which is based on the Greek goddess of victory, Nike.

This design was the inspiration for the modern silver and gold Libertad coins minted by the Casa de Moneda, or national mint of Mexico, which was originally founded in 1535, making it the oldest mint in North America. The reverse of these coins shows an image that honors Mexico’s Aztec heritage and depicts Coyolxauhqui from an Aztec temple in Mexico City.

The 50 pesos gold coin was minted from 1921 to 1947, when an official government restrike was issued. Since it is not a scarce coin with a substantial numismatic premium, it typically trades without regard to date, or as random date. The most common date for these coins is the 1947 restrike.

It is made of 90% gold and 10% copper, which was done because these coins were minted when gold was used in commerce. The addition of copper made the coins more durable.

These coins were also struck in copper-nickel and steel.
