Bought for sentimental reasons

By  Hermes the beekeeper

from Vonu



  • Attractive Design
  • Durable


  • Common (higher mintage)

I bought this coin simply in memory of my beloved grandfather (deceased). He encouraged me to travel while still young and I took his message to heart. He brought me back this coin as a souvenir from Acapulco in the 1970s. I wanted a backup. Now I have it. And aesthetically it is a work of art. +++ Beautiful - The feathers on the eagle and the scales on the snake are beautiful. The headdress and facial features are fantastic. - Low mintage - According to Numista the mintage is 26,740,000, more than 5X the 1947 issue. I didn't buy it as a collector, so this factor is irrelevant for me. - Condition - The text is so fine (a problem with many Mexican coins in my limited experience) that it is difficult to tell if it is 1943 or 1948. As it was issued only two consecutive years, the truth of the matter is obvious. As there is an imperfection that makes 'cinco' cingo', I would say it is XF. Its imperfections (like my grampa's) provide unique character.

Very Impressed

I've been buying new silver, mostly for long term investment. I'm not a collector. These came up on sale. I liked the design despite the price over spot, so I bought 4 on a whim. Wow! I had low expectations but these made me smile. One with a nice antique patina, but still sharp. Two that are exactly as stated, XF-AU, with one leaning toward BU. The last one had brilliant bronze and blue toning. Gorgeous coin. I originaly thought one would end up in my pocket for a charm before they arrived. They're too nice. I'm very happy.

Very Nice Coins

Terrific coins! More BU than XF-AU and more silver than a Morgan dollar. Well struck by the oldest mint in the New World.

Worth the wait.

By  Shooter 42

These big silver coins are rarely in stock but worth the wait when you finally get them in your hands. Very attractive design and large size make them especially fun to collect. My favorite coin of Mexico!

Bought ten more - 3rd-party-graded two..

By  Atarian

from Washington State


I sent two of the best, one with my PCGS order and one with my ANACS order. One was dated 1947, the other 1948. The 1947, which was the better of the two, came back as ANACS MS66. The 1948 came back as PCGS MS65. Not bad for near bullion price! Now, ignore this review so I can buy more!

Beautiful coins - very pleased

By  Atarian

from Washington State


Bought ten of these because they are an interesting design and not priced too much over spot. Of the coins I received most were AU+ with some in lower mint states. None were cleaned, damaged, or had any other issues.Very attractive coin and a great way to own silver. Sure you can get some generic rounds or cull Morgans for a bit less but these are really nice 60+ year old coins for just a little more. I don't see how you can go wrong with these.


from PA


Great coin. Nice weight. Nice price.


from NC


This is Mexico's best designed silver coin. I just wonder why they only made it for two years. Go ahead and buy hand over fist . Makes a neat silver coin key chain as well..


from CA


Albert from Los Angeles CA, I have an account with KITCO, and I've bought coins from them but ever since I was told about APMEX I did a research on this company, not only I was happy for the great costumer service but they are so reliable, can't wait to get my" Cuauhtemoc".


from CA


another nice low premium mexican coin, not only is it heavier than a us silver dollar but its cheaper as well.
