Mexico 1 Centavo 1899 to 1905
Before issuing coins under the Estados Unidos de Mexico (United States of Mexico), the Republic of Mexico (Republica Mexicana), issued these 1 centavo coins with C, M, and Mo mint marks. They are old enough to start to pick up collector value.
Here are approximate catalog values reported:
worn: $3 US dollars catalog value
average circulated: $6
well preserved (like our picture): $15
fully uncirculated: $35
These are catalog values for the common dates and mint marks. Use our Important Terminology link to understand what 'catalog value' means.
In addition to the common coins, there are some coins which carry significantly more value. Hope you have one of these!
Coins with C mint marks: $30 in average circulated condition
Coins dated 1899: $200 average circulated
Coins dated 1905 which do not look like this: $250 average circulated
