Product Details

This Mexican Silver 5 Pesos coin was minted in 1959 to celebrate the centennial of Venustiano Carranza's birthday. Each coin is struck from .720 fine silver and contains roughly 0.4178 troy oz of pure silver. This 5 pesos coin had a limited mintage of only 1 million coins! They are legal tender in Mexico and have a face value of five pesos. These coins are rather large for a circulation coin, are 36mm in diameter, and have a reeded edge.

The obverse shows a detailed left-facing portrait of Venustiano Carranza. Along the top of the rim it reads, "Year of Carranza," in Spanish and the date range between 1859 and 1959 along the bottom. The majestic Mexican coat of arms makes its home on the reverse of this 5 pesos silver coin. The weight, denomination, and purity are inscribed around the rim. The date 1959 is struck on the bottom.

Venustiano Carranza was Mexico's 37th president. As a leader in the Mexican Civil War, he led the forces of his Constitutionalist Army against the Mexican dictator, Victoriano Huerta, in 1913. Huerta was eventually overthrown, and later Carranza took power, until Carranza too was overthrown by his General.
