The history of Mexico Gold Pesos
Mexico Gold Pesos, designed by Emilio del Moral, are beautiful coins issued between 1921 and 1931 and then again from 1943 to 1972, by La Casa de Moneda de Mexico (The Mexican Mint). The Mexican Mint has produced Mexican coins since 1535, when it was established by the Spanish viceroy Antonio de Mendoza, creating the first mint in the Americas. A stunning Gold coin, the Mexican Gold 50 Pesos, features symbolism from Mexico’s Mesoamerican and Colonial history. The Mexican Mint offered these Gold coins for sale in 1921 to celebrate the Centenario (the 100th anniversary of Mexico’s Independence from Spain) up to 1931, and then restarted production in 1943 due to high demand for these Gold coins.
Why invest in Mexico Gold Pesos?
Mexico Gold Pesos are beautiful, but the Gold coins’ greatest value is not aesthetic or numismatic. Rather the greatest value of the Mexican Gold 50 Pesos lies in the sheer amount of Gold in this large Gold coin. Each of these 50 Pesos Gold coins has 1.2057 oz of Gold. These impressive Mexican coins have a low premium over spot price of Gold, making it an efficient way to add to your Gold holdings. One of the largest Gold coins for sale, Mexican Gold 50 Pesos offer a good investment and a way to balance your portfolio, especially important if other investments falter.
Mexico Gold Pesos have a low premium over the spot price of Gold – what does that mean?
Any Gold coin you buy is always more expensive per troy ounce than the Gold spot price, no matter where you buy it, which country it originates from or what kind of Gold coin it is. Some Gold coins for sale cost significantly more than the Gold spot price per troy ounce, especially if they are rare coins with a high Gold content and a beautiful design that makes them desirable to collectors. In addition, all Gold coins have fabrication, distribution and minor dealer fees added on to the Gold spot price, with this additional price known as the premium price. Mexican Gold Pesos, specifically the Mexican Gold 50 Pesos, cost a lower percentage over the Gold spot price than many other Gold coins, considering how much Gold the coin contains. Other Mexican coins, like the smaller denomination Gold pesos, also have a high Gold content and are more accessible and affordable, with a lower per-coin investment.
Does buying Mexican coins in the U.S. make a difference in price?
No matter which Gold coin you purchase from whichever country, the price is always in troy ounces and always set in U.S. dollars. Mexico Gold Pesos are valued based on the Gold spot price in U.S dollars. All Gold coins for sale have this same base Gold price. If this was not the case, the opportunity for arbitrage would exist, meaning you could buy Mexican coins at a cheaper price in Mexico and sell them for more in the U.S. Mexican coins, when for sale in Mexico, are simply converted to the local currency from U.S. dollars to reflect the price for 1 troy ounce of .999 fine Gold. Similarly, if Gold coins and other Gold bullion are sold in grams, the price is converted from troy ounces.
