Mexico 5 Pesos (with Cuauhtemoc) 1947 and 1948
Tens of millions of these coins were minted in Mexico during 1947 and 1948. They contain 0.868 troy ounces of silver, so their Base Value (BV) is 0.868 times the current price of silver. Right now, silver is trading around $20 US dollars per troy ounce, so BV = 0.868 x 20 = $17.30. To track the price of silver, use kitco.com.
No matter what condition, these coins are always worth at least BV. For nice-looking uncirculated examples, you can add a small amount to the value, like this:
average circulated: BV
well preserved: BV + $2
fully uncirculated: BV + $10
The 50 centavos coin also sports the striking image of Cuauhtemoc. Click to this page [PRESS HERE].
