Mexican Onzas at Provident Metals provide an affordable way to diversify your portfolio and expand your foreign coin collection. These hard-to-find coins are composed of 1 troy ounce of .925 pure silver and arrive in uncirculated condition.
The obverse of each 1 oz Silver Onza features an obsolete hand-operated coin press, along with the name of the Mexican Mint in Spanish: CASA DE MONEDA DE MXICO. The date is also included.
The reverse of each Mexican Onza features a hand scale design, along with the phrase “UNA ONZA TROY DE PLATA PURA,” which translates to mean one troy ounce of pure silver. The coin is inscribed with its weight and purity, and has a diameter of 41mm.
History of the Mexican Silver Onza
La Casa de Moneda de Mxico is the oldest mint on the American continents. Established by viceroy Antonio de Mendoza of Spain in 1535, the mint was mandated by King Charles I, who was eager to open the first New World mint.
For the next 400 years, silver eight-reales and pesos circulated widely across the Americas and into Asia. In 1949, the Mexican Mint issued the first Silver Onza, and the coin was resurrected briefly from 1978-1980. Today, all Mexican coins are produced in San Luis Potos, though the mint is headquartered at the Museo Nacional de las Culturas in Mexico City.
