Mexico 2 Pesos  1921
Mexico 2 Pesos 1921

This is a gorgeous silver coin celebrating the 100th anniversary of Mexican independence in 1921 (MCMXXI). The scantily-clad figure of Miss Liberty is a popular Mexican design, and it is used on 50 pesos gold coins from 1921 and after, as well as modern silver and gold bullion coins. The eagle and snake is another design found on many Mexican coins.

This coin contains 24 grams (0.772 troy ounces) of pure silver, so it can never be worth less than that, even in completely worn or damaged. At today's silver price of $33 US dollars per troy ounce (look it up, it changes every day), the minimum value of this coin is 0.772 x 33 = $25.

In addition to silver value, collectors seek to add nice-looking specimens to their collections. This drives the price up. Here are some typical additions to value over and above the silver value.

worn: add $0 US dollars to the base silver value
average circulated: add $10
well preserved (like our picture): add $30
fully uncirculated: add $350

Coin: 12881 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
