- Highly pleasedKennethon 8/8/13
OverallThese 10 "dos y medio" Peso coins were my second order of gold from Provident Metals. I couldn't be more pleased. the coins were exactly as stated, and beautiful strikes, even though mint date was 1945. Thanks, and I'll be back!!!
- Beautiful little coins!Davidon 10/31/12
OverallThis was my first gold purchase in over 30 yrs, however that may change to far more frequent interval depending on what happens in November.
- Good value for the $Michaelon 9/21/12
OverallI like the 2.5 peso for the low premium. I can't say that the design on the coin is very attractive, as compared to the old Euro small gold, but for folks on a limited PM budget, they are a very economical way to consistently keep adding to the stack!
- First gold purchase from providentMitchellon 8/6/12
OverallBought a 2 1/2 gold peso, and got an uncirculated 1945 restrike. Couldn't be happier with the condition and ship time. Next month will pick up a 5 peso. Thanks Provident!!
- Great PriceROBERTon 3/1/12
OverallI found this great looking coin going at a discount compared to other coins of the same weight. Its a little over 1/20 of an ounce. The coin itself is in great condition and I am glad that I bought it. I just started getting into Mexican coins and this was my first one. I love it and hope to buy a couple of the larger ones.
