i have that coin in silver...a 1988 $500 coin and on the back it says Estados Unidos Mexicanos.
Depending on condition, $5 to $10
In uncirculated condition it is worth around $2.50 USD. (2/28/2010)
Estados Unidos Mexicanos (United Mexican States) is the official registered named of what is commonly known as México, just as we might call United States of America, the States or USA or America. Geographically we are located in North America. Juan De La Torre
Most Mexican currency is made of nickel and copper alloys, but there are gold and silver coins called Centenarios and Onzas Libertad, respectively.
It means it has 5 oz of silver, valued at some 89.65 dollars. The motif of the coin could add some value, though.
It is .100 fine silver, it's nick name in Spanish, Feo means ugly do to it's low content and the fact they turn a ugly (rusty) gray and black.
Better re-check the date on that coin. "Estados Unidos Mexicanos" did not appear on Mexican 20 Centavos coins until 1905. Before that, they said "Republica Mexicana". Most likely, you have a more current date on your coin. If your coin is silver, it likely has a value of a dollar or two. If it is one of the more recent bronze coins, you will find them in dealers' misc. foreign bins for 25 cents or less.
You are asking about a coin from Mexico ("ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS" is Spanish for the "United Mexican States", Mexico's official name) dated 1993, but you would need to know the denomination and condition to value it. Denominations of 5, 10, 20 and 50 Centavos, and 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 Pesos were produced in 1993. None of the centavo coins are worth more than a dollar or so even in uncirculated condition, although the 1, 2, and 5 peso coins may be worth a couple of dollars even in Extremely Fine (that is, slightly circulated) condition. The 10, 20, and 50 Peso coins are bi-metallic, with silver in the center, so they will have value as silver separate and apart from the numismatic or exchange value.
Several factors have to be considered. First is the date because the percentage of silver changed from 90% over time down to 10%. Second would be the mint mark. Third would be the denomination, 500 what?Take it to a collector or dealer (careful, some dealers will tell you it's only worth scrap prices) Not so!Fourth is "Condition!" Condition decides if it is a $1 coin or a $1000 coin!
Assuming that you are referring to the commonly circulated 1987 100 peso coin (made of aluminum bronze - it sort of looks like brass), it is worth about US$0.60 in nice circulated condition and about US$3.00 in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. If you are referring to the 72% silver 100 peso coin issued to commemorate the World Wildlife Federation (with Monarch Butterflies on the back), it is worth about US$50.00 in Proof condition, and has about 0.75 troy ounces of silver (which has a melt value of around US$10 as of the end of February 2009).
Your coin is made of stainless steel rather than silver. I'm afraid I have to inform you that you have an ordinary circulation coin. The Mexican peso is worth about 10¢ U.S. and there are 100 centavos in a peso, so a 10-centavo coin is only worth one U.S. penny.
You are asking about a One Peso coin from Mexico (KM#459). The coin is 34.5mm in diameter, weighs 16 grams, and is 10% silver, giving it an ASW (Actual Silver Weight) of 0.514 troy ounces). The front has a portrait of a man facing right within a wreath. The back has an eagle with a snake in its mouth within a wreath, with "ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS" (Spanish for the "United Mexican States") above and "UN PESO 1960" ("One Peso 1960") below. The edge reads "INDEPENDENCIA Y LIBERTAD" ("Independence and Liberty"). 26,259,000 such coins were produced in 1960 at the Mexico City mint. With silver at US$33.80 per troy ounce (as of July 1, 2011), the "melt" value of the coin is about US$1.74. According to the Standard Catalog of World Coins, the coin is only worth its silver value in circulated condition - in Uncirculated it is valued at US$3.25, and in Brilliant Uncirculated, US$4.50.
Your 10 peso coin is worth less than a penny U.S.
I'm not sure, but it is actually an eagle, on a cactus, eating a snake. This was where the Aztecs built Tenochtitlan at Lake Texcoco, where they saw that exact eagle. Sorry I could not tell you what it was worth, but maybe the eagle thing cleared something up! This coin contains .6431 troy oz of silver, so its bullion value is currently higher than its numismatic value. My price guide suggests it is worth $6 in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, but the silver in it is worth about $11.
The Un Peso, or one peso, was minted, beginning in 1957 through 1967 as a circulating coin in Mexico (KM#459). They weighed 0.514 troy ounces, total mass. "Estados Unidos Mexicanos" is Spanish for "Mexican United States."As a foreign exchange, it is basically worthless. In 1992, the "old" Peso was re-valued, then exchanged at a rate of 1000 "old" Pesos for 1 "new" Peso. As of November 2009, the exchange rate was about 13 "new" pesos to the US dollar.As bullion, the coin weighs 15.987456 grams, or about 0.514 troy ounces total coin weight, of which 10% is silver, or 0.0514 troy ounces (10%). As of 21 September 2012, with silver at about US $34.78 per troy ounce, that gives your coin a "melt value" of about $1.79 US, or approximately $2.00, which includes the 90% copper content. As a practical matter, however, the low percentage of silver means that a bullion buyer would likely pay nowhere near that amount.As a numismatic item, the value depends on the coin's condition. 52.6 million were produced, so it is not particularly rare. In Brilliant Uncirculated condition, it may be worth anywhere from $5 to $8. In circulated condition, however, it is worth little more than its $2.00 melt value.
Mexico revalued its currency in 1992-93 due to hyperinflation. The N5 on your coin stands for "5 New Pesos". Note that Mexico uses the same $ sign as American dollars, but it represents pesos rather than dollars. The current exchange rate is roughly 10 pesos to the dollar, so your coin is worth about 50 cents U.S. Also, the coin is not silver and gold. The silver-colored part is stainless steel and the gold-colored part is aluminium-bronze. These are all inexpensive metals so your coin has no precious-metal value.
Since it's silver! Between $20-$30. Uncirculated, about $50 or more.
This is a Mexican 20 (new) pesos coin. These were minted from 1993 to 1995. The center is silver and the outer ring is aluminum-bronze. Several of these have recently sold on eBay for $7 apiece.
Silver value in bad circulated condition, $25 in average circulated condition, $41 in good circulated condition, and $995 in uncirculated condition.
Silver value in bad circulated condition, $25 in average circulated condition, $35 in good circulated condition, and $730 in uncirculated condition.
Certain early United States of America coins have had an estimated 90% silver for years. Denominations start at 3 cents silver (1851 to 1873); half disme (dime) (1794 to 1873); 5 cents (1942 to 1945); 10 cents up to 1964 and then only in proofs sets; 20 cents (1875 to 1878); 25 cents up to 1964, some San Francisco mint (S) - 1976-S, 1992-S thru 1998- S, and then only in certain (S mint) proofs sets up to present date; 50 cents up to 1964 (1965 to 1970-D and S have 40% silver); and 1 dollar coins up to 1935, and then only in certain (S mint) proofs sets up to present date. In the first sentence I spelled out USA because Mexico also have United States (Estados Unidos Mexicanos).
I think you need to double-check that date -- it should be 1982 -- Mexico was a republic in 1882. Unless the coin says onza plata pura (1 ounce pure silver), it's value is negligable -- maybe a couple cents. An onza is currently worth about $10.00 The coin you have is : = REPUBLICA Mexico 1882 LIBERTAD .8R .Z .1882. J. S. 10D. 20G. COIN. It is 46.5% silver and today is worth about 10US Dollars = = ********* = = Pls reference this web site: = = http://www.identificacion-numismatica.com/otras-incluso-extranjeras-f6/r-mexicana-8-reales-1882-t22318.htm = = According to this site, the 10D 20G refers to the purity, where 12D is pure silver and each D equals 24G. = = So, the coin weighs about 27 grams, or about 2/3 of a troy ounce, and is about 90% pure. =
