Mexican Coin Values

What are Mexican Coins worth?

We get this question a lot. It really depends on when they are from. The hard part with Mexican coins is that there is a large area of coins from the 1960s to early 1990s that have no exchange value, no silver value, and no collector value.

Part of the reason they have no exchange value is because they have been demonetized.  This means the the currency has been made useless by decree of the government.

The good news is that it makes it very inexpensive to put together different types of Mexican coins. Most of the coins have the Eagle and Snake symbol on one side, the other side will often have a portrait of Morales or Hidalgo, while some have really neat images of Aztec or Palenque culture.
