Build your silver stack with these 1960 Mexican 10 pesos coins. Minted to commemorate 150 years of Mexican independence, the 10 pesos coin features national heroes Miguel Hidalgo and Francisco Madero and contains 90 percent silver. These coins have an actual silver weight of .8357 troy ounces silver.
The 1960 ten pesos coin is unusual for an anniversary coin in that it includes three dates, rather than the customary two. The obverse features a double portrait of Hidalgo and Madero and the years 1810, 1960 and 1910. The inscriptions read “Independencia y Libertad” (Independence and Liberty) and “”Sufragio Efectivo No Reelecion” (Real Democracy No Re-Election), the slogans for which each man is best known.
The reverse includes the seal of Mexico–the eagle eating the snake while perched on a cactus under the words “Estados Unidos Mexicanos”–and the inscriptions “Diez Pesos” (10 pesos), “28.888 G,” “1960,” and “Ley 900,” indicating the silver content.
Miguel Hidalgo is considered the “Father of Mexico” for his role in igniting the 1810 War of Independence against Spain. The Mexican priest, frustrated by the extreme poverty of those in his parish, gave his famous speech “The Cry of Dolores” in 1810, encouraging the people to protect themselves against the Spanish king by revolting. He led a ragtag army against polished troops in a march across Mexico before being executed in 1811.
Francisco Madero had a similarly powerful history. Madero worked to overthrow the dictatorship of Porfirio Diaz, using the slogan “Real Democracy, No Re-Election,” and was himself elected president of Mexico in 1911. He served until an assassination by his political enemies in 1913.
Whether you are interested in the history of these two great leaders or just interested in further developing your investment or survival silver, the 1960 10 peso coin will be a great addition to your collection.
