The history of Mexican Silver coins
Minted Mexican coins first began circulating in the 1530s. Prior to that, Mexican Silver coins and other Precious Metals coins did not exist, instead, the first of the conquistadors brought with them Castellano coins or used indigenous means of exchange. Unable to buy Silver coins or trade them, the early arrivals to Mexico would exchange cocoa, jade, coarse cotton blankets or patolcuachtli, which is duck feather quills filled with Gold powder. In 2015, Silver coins are still in circulation in Mexico, as the 20, 50 and 100 peso coins have an aluminum bronze exterior ring and a .925 Silver center.

Understand the difference between Silver bullion with proof or reverse proof finish.
When buying coins, a proof coin is the finest quality coin made especially for collectors using a high-quality minting process which often includes striking the coin at least twice, giving the design even more definition. Proof coins have beautiful mirrorlike fields (the flat, empty spaces) and frosted devices (the images that are raised up). Mexican Silver coins, or any coin, that is a reverse proof is struck with the same precision and method as a proof, except that the field is frosted and the device is mirror-like. The name reverse proof can sometimes cause confusion. When you buy reverse proof coins, the entire coin is in reverse proof finish, not just the reverse side of the coin.
Protect your proof and reverse proof finish Silver bullion.
Taking care of your Mexican coins with proof and reverse proof finish is very important to maintain their value. Handling Mexican Silver coins that have a proof or reverse proof finish is not encouraged, as the ultimate way to maintain their value is to always keep these unique Silver coins in protective packaging. These coins often come in a protective plastic coin flip or case that not only protects the coins but often provides authentication. Holding these coins in your hand may be too difficult to resist, in that case, many experienced coin collectors wear soft cotton gloves.
