Mexican 100 Pesos silver coins are a cost-effective way to diversify your portfolio and add to your foreign coins collection. Each 100 Pesos coin at Provident Metals contains .6428 troy ounces of .720 pure silver and arrives in almost uncirculated condition or better.

The obverse of each 100 Peso features a portrait of General Jos Mara Morelos, the 19th century Mexican revolutionary who led the Mexican War of Independence (1810-1821). It is inscribed with the words “PLATA PURA 20 GR LEY .720,” which translates to mean pure silver 20 grams .720 fine. The year of issue is also included.

The reverse of each Silver 100 Peso features the Mexican coat of arms: an eagle with a snake in its beak, standing atop a cactus. It is inscribed with the words “ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS,” or United Mexican States.

History of the 100 Peso Silver Coin

La Casa de Moneda de Mxico is the oldest mint on the American continents. Established by the first viceroy of New Spain, Antonio de Mendoza in 1535, the mint was ordered by King Charles I, who was eager to open the first American mint. For the next 400 years, silver eight-reales and pesos circulated widely across the Americas and into Asia.

In 1977, the Mexican Mint unveiled the nation’s first 100 peso coin. Short lived, the coin was replaced by a base metal variation just two years later. Many of the coins were melted for their silver, rendering them scarce today. Mexican coins are now produced in San Luis Potos, though the mint is headquartered at the Museo Nacional de las Culturas in Mexico City.
