History of the 1920 - 1945 Mexican 1 Peso Silver Coin
La Casa de Moneda de México is the oldest mint to open 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 four centuries, silver eight-reales and pesos circulated widely across the Americas and into Asia.
By 1918, the weight and fineness all silver Mexican coins had decreased, and two years later, the government began to release this silver 1 peso coin. It was issued until 1945. 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.
