History of the Mexican 25 Peso Olympic Silver Coin

La Casa de Moneda de México 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 1968, Mexico City was home to the 19th Summer Olympics. To celebrate, the Mexican Mint released the commemorative 25 peso Olympic silver coin. Today, all Mexican coins are produced in San Luis Potosí, though the mint is headquartered at the Museo Nacional de las Culturas in Mexico City.
