Mexico 5, 10, and 20 Centavos  1863 to 1905
Mexico 5, 10, and 20 Centavos 1863 to 1905

These are silver coins from the Second Mexican Republic. The catalogs show these coins -- all three denominaions of 5, 10, and 20 centavos -- with lots of twists and turns due to dates and mint marks. If you have a nice-looking coin, get general values from CoinQuest, but visit a knowledgeable collector or professional coin dealer for an in-person look at your coin. Values can be very low or very high, depending on a few subtle factors.

The mint mark is quite important on these coins. It is found at the top of the denomination (5, 10, 20) side with the half-wreath below. In our picture the mint mark is MoM for the Mexico City mint. Other mints include Zacatecas (H, A, ZsS and others) and Guanajuato (GoR), plus others. The 9027 at the top next to the mint mark is the purity of the silver (90.3 percent pure).

Our listings give general values for common dates and mint marks, plus some idea for more valuable *better date* coins.
