Mexico 50 Pesos 1984 to 1992

Whenever you are evaluating a modern coin dated after 1948, ask yourself one question: is it made of gold or silver? If not, 99 percent of the time, your coin is worth face value.

For this coin, made of copper-nickel from 1984 to 1988, and made of stainless steel from 1988 to 1992, catalog values run:

worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: less than $1
fully uncirculated: $2

If you read our article about modern coins, found at this CoinQuest link [Press Here], you will see that mintage rarity can sometimes drive the price of modern coins upward. This happens with the Mexico 50 pesos:

COINS DATED 1986 OR 1988*
worn: $4 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $8
well preserved: $10
fully uncirculated: $12

so be sure to look for the good dates.

*To be valualbe, coins dated 1988 must be made of copper-nickel; stainless steel coins dated 1988 carry low value only.

Coin: 18861 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
