Description

The 50 Peso Mexican Gold Coin is more commonly known today as the gold Centenario, so-called because it was first issued in 1921 by the Mexican Mint to commemorate 100 years of Mexican independence from Spanish colonial rule. The coins were issued regularly from 1921 to 1931, with production restarted in 1943 to meet rising demand for gold coins. All coins in the collection issued from 1949 to 1972 typically have a set 1947 date mark.

On the obverse side of the 50 Peso Mexican Gold Coin, you’ll find the original depiction of Winged Victory. Designed by Emilio del Moral, this image features a front-facing Angel of Independence as she holds the wreath crown of military victory and self-governance over her head in her right hand. The left hand is down at her side and clutches the broken chains of servitude.

The reverse of all 50 Peso Mexican Gold Coins features the coat of arms for Mexico. These coins could feature various depictions of the Mexican coat of arms, but the general design remains focused on a golden eagle on a cactus perch as it battles with a snake.

Original 50 Peso Mexican Gold Coins had relatively low mintage figures throughout its production history. The original 1921-1931 issues had a mintage high of 716,000 coins in 1925 and a mintage low of 180,000 in 1921. The 1949-1972 coins issued with the 1947 date mark had a total mintage of 3.97 million coins.
