1950 Mexico Silver 5 Pesos Southern Railroad AU+

1950 Mexico Silver 5 Pesos Southern Railroad AU+

This popular commemorative was produced in 1950 to celebrate the opening of the Southern Railroad. Between its low mintage and unique, eye-catching reverse design, this is an extremely popular type for collectors.

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains .643 oz of Silver.
  • Coins are shipped in protective plastic flips.
  • Coins have full detail and mint luster, but will show slight wear on the high points of the design.
  • Obverse: The Mexican national coat of arms as depicted on the standard circulating 5 peso of the time, with denomination and date below, flanked by legends of weight and purity.
  • Reverse: A sun bearing the date 1950 rises behind a landscape prominently featuring a locomotive and palm trees.

In addition to the intricate design, this coin had a mintage of only 200,000 pieces, half of which are believed to have been melted to produce the 1968 Olympic commemorative. A low survival rate certainly fits with their relative availability. These coins are tough to come by, especially in nice condition. Add one to your cart today!
