hidalgoMexican Gold Centenario 50 Peso Coin

Gold and Silver coins from Mexico have a long history and a low premium over spot. Celebrate a little Feliz Navidad with savings on your bullion purchases when you buy these coins:

The 1955-1956 Silver 10 Pesos “Hidalgo” coin is as low as 50Ā¢ over spot. The obverse features Father Hidalgo, whose protests over the abuse of peasants by the Spanish-born nobility in 1810 ignited the Mexican Revolution. These 90% silver coins have an ASW of .8357 troy ounces each. If you don’t care for the small numismatic value of the coins, you could dip them to shine them up and use them as Christmas gifts to get a child interested in coins.

The 50 Peso “Centenario de Oro” gold coin from Mexico was first minted in 1921. This 900 fineness gold coin was used in generalĀ  circulation in Mexico in the first half of the 20th century. This beautiful coin features the “Angel of Independence” statue from the Mexican Independence monument in downtown Mexico City. This same design was later adopted for Mexico’s bullion coin, the Libertad, in the 1980s. Containing an AGW of 1.2057 troy ounces of gold, this coin can be had for as little as $8.29 over spot. This great price is why the Centenario de Oro is so popular with our buyers.
