Gold Mexican Pesos

Before the Krugerrand was introduced in 1967, one of the few large world bullion coins was the 50 Pesos from Mexico. This was issued from 1921 to 1947, although close to 4 million more were issued between 1949 and 1972 which were almost certainly all dated 1947.

The fifty peso coin was designed by Emilio del Moral and was originally issued from 1921 until 1947. Coins were produced after this date, however they were dated 1947 and are known as restrikes. 


The obverse features The Angel of Independence - a famous monument based in Mexico City. The statue was unveiled in 1910 to commemorate the first 100 years of Mexican Independence.


The reverse shows Mexico's Coat of Arms, which consists of an eagle with a snake in its beak. This is based on Aztec legend, where they would build their city based on the location where they witnessed an eagle eating a snake on a lake. The Mexican Coat of Arms is also prominently featured in the centre of the Mexican flag.
