Mexico 5 Nuevo Pesos 1992 to 1995
The reason these coins are annotated '5 nuevo pesos' (5 new pesos, or N$5) is because Mexico had a massive devaluation of its currency in 1992. With inflation rampant, one thousand pesos were replaced by a single new peso.
Modern coins are worth face value. The currency exchange web site xe.com says 1 new pesos is worth about 7 US cents, so 5 new pesos are worth about 35 cents.
Collectors will pay a few dollars to add this coin to their collections.

Requester description: 1994 This coin has a copper center and a rim of silver. On one side, n$5 appears in the copper center, as do a small scroll and the letters 'om.'
On the other side,there is a picture of a dragon-like eagle with a snake coming out of its mouth and the words 'Estados Unitos Mexicanos' written around it...Both sides have what looks to me like hieroglyphics around the silver edge.
