Cool coin, Monica. Your Mexican 5 pesos celebrates the opening of the Southern Railroad. It contains 0.643 troy ounces of silver. Only 200000 were minted, and 100000 of them were (perhaps) melted later. This drives the price upward.
First compute the Base Value (BV) due to silver content. Mulitply the current price of silver (from kitco.com) by 0.643. To the base value, add the following:
worn: add $20 US dollars to the base value
average circulated: add $40
well preserved: add $55
fully uncirculated: add $70
The BV + added value quantity will give you an approximate catalog value for your coin. To properly interpret the catalog value, click to our Terminology page.
