Mexico 25 Centavos 1950 to 1953
'Ley' means law and 'Cs' means centavos on this coin. By law, this coin contains 25 centavos worth of silver in 1950. That's a total silver content of 0.0321 troy ounces. At today's silver price of about $21 US dollars per troy ounce, that's 0.0321 x 21 = 67 US cents. Tomorrow the price of silver will be different, so look it up on web sites such as kitco.com.
These coins are quite common and do not command high prices. Typical catalog values are:
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
