Mexico Coins


This piece was coined in 1921 as hard currency to commemorate the first 100 years (centennial) of the Mexican Independence. Subsequently, in 1931 coinage was discontinued and it was not until 1943 when it started again due to the increasing demand for gold coins prevailing at that time. On the obverse side, the centenario presents one of the national coat of arms used in the past, and the reverse side symbolizes the Winged Victory having the legendary Ixtaccíhuatl and Popocatépetl volcanoes on the background.
