Explore Mexico by collecting Mexican coins that worth money.

Here are some ways to start the Mexican coin collection

1.) Learn the history of coinage in Mexico

To deepen your appreciation of collecting Mexican coins, go learn about the complex history of Mexican coinage. Discover what was the medium of exchange used by Mexican merchants for their trade when coins did not exist yet. Read books, read articles, and trace the beginnings and developments of the Mexican peso.

It is also worthy to note that the Casa de Moneda de Mexico (Mexican Mint) is the first coin mint in the Americas. It was established in 1535 when the Viceroy Antonio de Mendoza arrived to the New Spain (a political unit of Spanish territories in North and Central America and Asia Pacific).

De Mendoza brought a royal order from the Spanish monarch to build the first mint in America. For more than 300 hundred years, the silver and gold coins produced by the Mexican Mint were the basis of money circulating in the country and became export products.

2.) Identify Mexican coins

There can be plenty of coins you will find in Mexican numismatics. It is very important that you know how to identify Mexican coins, know their coin prices, their historical and numismatic significance, and more.

Types of valuable Mexican coins

Rare Mexican coins worth money

Collecting rare Mexican coins can be a bit challenging but fulfilling at the same time. There is no greater sense of achievement when a numismatist locates a valuable rare coin and gets to own it.

Aside from being challenging, rare Mexican coin collecting can be an expensive hobby too.

An example of a rare Mexican coin that worth money is the 1988 Mexican 500 peso gold coin. It is a commemorative issue of the 50th Anniversary of Nationalization of Oil Industry with gold composition (.900) and weighs 17.28 grams. This coin is so rare that many coin collectors have not seen one of these coins over the years.

Silver coins of Mexico

One of the most famous Mexican silver coins is the Libertad. First introduced in the 1940s, the silver Libertad was not minted for many years and was only produced again in the 80s.

Currently, the Mexican Mint produces modern and exquisite Mexican Libertad silver bullion coins primarily for bullion coin investors and to collectors as well. The Libertad also come in gold.

Mexican gold coins

The Mexican gold coins are composed of ancient pieces to modern numismatic items. The Aztec Empire was famous for their use of gold in various artifacts, accessories and coins while during the Spanish rule, gold escudos were produced and used.

When Mexico gained its independence its coinage remained based on the Spanish currency (e.g. Mexican gold peso) until 1864. Today, examples of famous Mexican gold coins are the bullion coins 1 Onza and Mexican 50 peso gold coin.

Mexican error coins

Coin errors are mistakes that occurred during the minting of coins. The mint mistakes on Mexican error coins would vary from off-centering, die breaks, to misstrikes and these errors are most common on centavo and/or peso coins.

Uncirculated Mexican coins

Collecting uncirculated Mexican coins are worth your time and investment. Most of these uncirculated coins are valuable Mexican coins and sometimes rare. You can buy these coins from a local coin dealer shop or from reputable online coin stores, be sure that the coins are PCGS and NGC certified.

Examples of uncirculated coins you can buy online are the Mexican 5 peso silver coin that honors the last Aztec King and the 1921 Gold 50 Peso Mexican coin, the latter will cost you $4,000 USD to have the gold coin in your collection.

The Mexican money: circulating coins

Of course, above everything else, there is the Mexican money which is composed of peso and centavo coins. Collecting the circulating coins of Mexico is one exciting feat indeed. You can collect by denomination, by year or by every change in design. It is quite easy but enjoyable.

3.) Choose what Mexican coins to collect

Because of the countless possibilities in collecting Mexican coins, it is important to set your purpose to set your direction in the hobby. Decide what coins you would want to focus on.

If you are a lover of history, then collect old Mexican coins like coins from the Aztec Empire, the era of Spanish rule, to the Independence Movement and so on.

If you are after the beauty and condition of the numismatic piece, collecting high graded coins will suit your fancy. If you are a numismatist who is in for a little challenge, try rare Mexican coins.

But if you are the collector who wants to keep it simple and fun, go for the circulating coins – the Mexican peso and centavo coins. On the other hand, for those who intend to invest on gold coins and other bullion coins, Mexican silver coins and gold coins are ideal.

Ensure authenticity

This is mostly important when you are buying expensive Mexican coins. To ensure authenticity of the coin, always ask for the certificate of authenticity. When it comes to graded coins, only accept the pieces evaluated by a well-established professional coin grading company.

Know Mexican coin values
