Mexico 50 Centavos 1992 to 2009
You have made a common mistake, PAJ. One that has happened before on CoinQuest. Your coin is actually from 1994, not 1894. Look closely at the date. Not only that, it is made from aluminum bronze, which can be easily mistaken for gold. In other words, it is a modern 50 centavos coin from the United States of Mexico (Estados Unidos Mexicanos). It is worth face value.
If you have one of these coins in absolutely, fully uncirculated condition, a keen collector might pay $1 or $2 US dollars to add it to their collection.
