2005 Mexico 10 Pesos

Have a Mexico coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Surprisingly there is a smaller amount of Mexican coins in the vaults than I thought I would own. In the news and on television Mexico is constantly being mentioned. I guessed I would have a huge amount instead I have found or got a only fifty one of them.


The front has ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS which essentially means UNITED  STATES of MEXICO. Yes they did this on purpose to be more like their neighbors. Typical Mexican symbol of an eagle with a snake on a cactus.

The reverse has an intricate Aztec carving, Not as cool as a Mayan calendar if you believe the misinterpretations. On the brass outer ring is $10 2005 DIEZ PESOS OM. The O over M is the mint mark for Mo = Mexico City the main branch for many years.

Exchange value is only about $0.75 not as bad as some people may joke.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 10 Pesos / Mexico
Year: 2005
Mintage: 64,635,000
Metal: Bi-Metallic: Copper-Nickel center, Brass ring
Value: $1.25 in Very-Fine

Hey Man,
Since no one else has commented, I think I will take the opportunity to do so. You know, I've got a few of these 10 peso coins sitting around, and they all look terrible. Albeit, the design looks beautiful and full of glorified Central American history, every 10 peso coin I have is just in terrible condition. I'm guessing they get plenty of use, which shows on the coins.

Anyways, a bit off-topic, I've been doing some reading on the possible composition changes of the penny and nickel, I find it to be a great idea, as a taxpayer and from an economical stand point, but what's your opinion? I just wanted to see how you felt about it. I kind-of wished that they actually changed the sizes of the coins as well, maybe reducing the size of the penny to the size of a Dutch 10C or Swedish 10 ore. I understand the implications of changing the coin sizes with all the coin vendor lobbyists out there not willing to change, but I just think that maybe it's time to revamp our coinage. Just an idea, that will never be heard in DC, but regardless, dreaming of such a change is the fun part!

Canadian coin dumper!

--I found that the majority are in great shape, but it is logical since the use cash more than credit.

possible composition changes of the penny and nickel
--I think it is great and it will probably happen.

As for size change likely never. Although a thinner coin is possible.

1958 om 5$ estados unidos mexicanos coin goldish color center with silver ring.
--No such thing.
It must be a 1998 and it's about $1.50 in very-fine.

Look up PCGS or NGC for authorized dealers and appraisers.
They also have great online price guides.

Error 1988 Mexican $100 coin that is completely missing the 1 in the date 1988 on it.

Sounds like a Struck Through Grease error, that is common and adds no extra value.

About $0.30.

Hi,I like ur blog.Nice work.I've got lots of American and Mexican coins. Recently noticed the diez pesos coin 2008 differs from 2000 where "diez pesos" in 2008 is "año 2000" in 2000 versión. Does that make a diff. In its value or worth at all? BTW,in spanish the Word año means year,when written with symbol over letter "n". If written w/out symbol, "ano" it means anus,yes,as,in butthole,balloon-knot,chocolate starfish. Watevr word u use to address the toothless wonder with bad breath.

--About $1.00 in very-fine the change in design does not affet value.

1876 Libertad Mexican coin. Along the bottom,this is written *8R-G°-1876-F-R-10 Ds-20 Gs.
--About $45.00
8R = 8 Reales
Go 1876 FR = Guanajuato Mint

10 Ds-20 Gs =
10 dineros por 20 granos
10 cents per 20 grains

1900 coin just like that 1876 coin I asked u about
--I do not recognize this coin as 8 Reales stopped being made by 1900.

This coin is no longer legal.
It has no exchange value.

For coin collectors it has a value of about $1.00 or 60 Indian Rupee.

$10 1998 gold coin about $2.50
$5 2007 gold/silver coin about $1.25
$2 2006&2008 gold/silver coins about $1.00 each

None are true gold/silver instead they are brass and copper-nickel.

Unless they say gold and have a purity number.
