History of the 100 Peso Silver Coin

La Casa de Moneda de México 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 Potosí, though the mint is headquartered at the Museo Nacional de las Culturas in Mexico City.
