Mexico 5 Centavos 1950 to 1959
This is an interesting series of modern coins from Mexico. That is María Josefa Crescencia Ortiz Téllez- Girón. She was instrumental in the Mexican War of Independence from Spain in the early 19th century. From 1942 to 1955 Josefa was facing left on the 5 centavos. Starting in 1950, Josefa faced right. This page applies to right-facing Josefa.
All these coins, both left- and right-facing, are modern coins made of non-precious metal (bronze and brass), so their value is low. Typical catalog values for coins like the picture here are:
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: $1
fully uncirculated: $4
But, there are a few *good dates* in this series which are worth more. See this CoinQuest page for information on the good date of 1942 for left-facing coins.
For right-facing coins, 1954 is the good date. (Note: coins dated 1954 with a left-facing Josefa are worth very little.)
5 CENTAVOS DATED 1954 WITH RIGHT-FACING JOSEFA
worn: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $10
well preserved: $50
fully uncirculated: $350
Refer to our Important Terminology page to properly interpret these catalog values.
