Here we are going to take a look at a 1980 5 Peso Coin from the country of Mexico.  See it in the pictures at the bottom.  First examining the front of it one will notice an image of what adorns most Mexican coins which is the coat of arms (photo on the right hand side).  The back of this 5 Peso coin has a native sculpture that to me looks like the head of a dragon.  This coin is made from a combination of nickel as well as copper.  It weight is approximately 10.2 grams and it was a commonly produced issue with roughly 266.9 million made.

1994 Mexican 1 Peso Coin Uang Logam Satu Peso dari Mexico

Here we will look at a 1994 Mexican 1 Peso coin (see it in the images below).  This was one of the last years that this design was used (after a long run) and was still being made during the time the bimetallic Nuevo Peso was being put into effect.  This one is struck in just stainless steel.  In any case the front of this 1994 Mexican 1 Peso coin is the coat of arms of Mexico featuring an eagle with a snake in its mouth.  It has on its back side a portrait of Jose Morelos whose occupation was a priest but who later became an important figure in Mexico’s struggle (war) for independence against Spain.  He replaced Hidalgo (after he was executed) and eventually also was captured and killed in 1815.  Morelos was featured on the 1 Peso for 3 decades and has a state and city named after him in Mexico.
