Produced by the Banco De Mexico between 1905-1955, the 5 Peso Mexican Gold Coin is the third smallest denomination of the coin series. Each piece has been masterfully crafted from 0.1206 troy oz .9 fine gold, making it appropriate for more modest investments. It possesses a diameter of 19 mm and a width of 1.01 mm. Please be advised that while the gold coins included in this collection are available in a broad range of conditions and mintage dates, Wallace Precious Metals is unable to disclose these specifics prior to the coin’s shipment.

The artwork featured on the 5 Peso coin pays homage to Mexico’s rich cultural heritage. Gracing the front side of the coin is the portrait of the Mexican hero, Don Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla. This celebrated pastor led an army of 90,000 civilians into battle during Mexico’s War of Independence. Given his historical significance, it is only fitting that artists would take great care in engraving the intricate details of this inspirational figure from the contours of his facial features to the wisps of his hair. The words “Cinco Pesos” appear along the edge of the coin along with its year of mintage.
Proudly emblazoned unto the reverse side of the coin is the Mexican Coat of Arms. This emblem is derived from the folklore regarding the founding of Mexico, in which the first inhabitants received a divine message, instructing them to build a city once they encountered a golden eagle devouring a snake while standing upon a cactus. Since then, this powerful image has also come to symbolize the ideal of good triumphing over evil, a belief that provided significant hope during their oppression under Spain. Also inscribed above the emblem are the words, “Estados Unidos Mexicanos.”
This 5 Peso Mexican Gold Coin is an opportunity to enhance both the financial value and historical merit of any collection or investment portfolio.
