1948 Mexico Silver 5 Pesos Cuauhtemocs XF-AU (ASW .8681 oz) - Natural Gold Toning

Mexico has the longest standing history in the Americas for producing large crown sized silver coins and Mexico’s coinage production in the 20th century continued to live up to that reputation. One fine example is the Cinco (Five) Peso Cuauhtemoc coin minted shortly after World War II from 1947 to 1948.

The coin comes in at a whopping 40mm in diameter, weighs 30 grams, and has 0.868 ounces of silver giving it the highest silver content for a circulating coin at that time.
