Token: Mexico Gold Fantasy Coin  1865
Token: Mexico Gold Fantasy Coin 1865

Hello, Dina -- Mexico did not issue any gold coins during 1865. Maximiliano had just taken over as emperor and he issued centavos and pesos in silver, but nothing in gold. Your coin, instead, is a 'fantasy piece' sold as a novelty or wedding coin in gift shops and tourist destinations. You can see gold coins of Mexico, as well as your fantasy piece, on the Worldwide-Numismatics.com web site.

These sell on eBay for less than $1 US dollar each. They probably have 22 karat gold plating, but the amount of gold in each piece is negligible. Value of a single coin is less than $1.

Coin: 12728 , Genre: Tokens

So if I had hundreds of those little Gold coins it still would not be worth much money? Well maybe if I keep them for 30 years or so. Do you know when they were replicated? Thank you!
- nope
They were most likely made within the last 50 years or so. - CoinQuest (Todd)

I bought one in Hawaii in June 1972
