This is my first foreign currency. Such detail went into making this coin. From the feathers on the golden eagle to the scales on the snake clutched in it's talons. Coin is in great condition, certainly xf-au. I've read many times about the "big Mexican silver", and I will surely be buying more in the future.

** the 1947-1948 Mexico Silver Cinco Pesos Cuauhtemocs XF-AU (ASW .8681 oz) is the coin to which the following article refers and from which the sixty-two (62) Texas Ranger Badges were made in 1962.** October, 1962: TEXAS RANGERS NOW WEAR NEW BADGES OF MEXICAN SILVER The following article was released by the Texas Department of Public Safety in 1962 when the Texas Rangers were issued their current silver badges. Colonel Homer Garrison, Jr., Director of the Texas Department of Public Safety and Chief of the Texas Rangers, announced in October, 1962, that the Texas Rangers are going back to the tradition steeped Mexican silver badge worn by their predecessors during frontier days. Garrison said the new official Ranger badge, issued to each of the 62 members of the Force, is a replica of the historic original badge which old-time Rangers carved out of a Mexican five peso silver dollar when Texas became a State and their duties changed from military to law enforcement. The best information available indicates that the five-pointed star on the badge symbolized the "Lone Star" of Texas. The points are supported by an engraved wheel, which is termed the "wagon-wheel" badge. Each badge is made from a Mexican five Peso silver coin. The oak leaves on the left side represent strength and the olive branch on the right signifies peace. These are taken from the Texas Great Seal. The cutout center star has engraving on it and the center of the star is reserved for the Company designation or the rank of Sergeant or Captain or Senior Captain. The edges still often have the coin lines and the coin is still highly visible on the reverse of the badge. The five point "Lone Star" with a "wheel" around it is common in Ranger and other Texas badges from the late 1800's. ** the 1947-1948 Mexico Silver Cinco Pesos Cuauhtemocs XF-AU (ASW .8681 oz) is the coin from which the above badges were made**

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.
- Attractive Design
- Common (higher mintage)
