Mexico 5 centavos  1950 to 1976
Mexico 5 centavos 1950 to 1976

These are modern coins from Mexico. The 'older women' is María Josefa Crescencia Ortiz Téllez - Girón, an insurgent and supporter of the Mexican War of Independence against Spain. Maria Josefa, known affectionately as La Corregidora, appears on all dates between 1950 and 1976. The national arms (eagle, snake, cactus) changes slightly after 1969.

These are modern coins made of non-precious metal, brass, so their values are low, except for coins dated 1954. Typical catalog values are:

5 CENTAVOS 1954 (THIS DATE ONLY)
worn: $4 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $12
well preserved: $45
fully uncirculated: $300

5 CENTAVOS 1955 To 1976
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: $1
fully uncirculated: $2

There is also a 5 centavos minted in 1950 made out of copper nickel instead of brass. Collectors like to call them white Josefas and they carry decent value.

5 CENTAVOS 1950 (WHITE JOSEPHA)
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $3
fully uncirculated: $10
