Details & Specifications

The 1985 Mexican 250 Peso Proof Gold World Cup Coin has an actual gold weight (AGW) of 0.250 troy ounces. The coin celebrates the 450th anniversary of the Mexico City Mint (La Casa de Moneda de México). It also commemorates the 1986 World Cup of Fútbol (soccer), which was hosted by Mexico. In addition to its 0.900 fineness, this is a proof coin, meaning its planchet underwent a special process prior to striking that renders its field reflective and its details frosted.

The obverse of the coin has the "Caballito" design from the 1910 silver peso, considered to be one of the most beautiful Mexican coins ever produced. The obverse depicts a woman riding a horse with a torch in one hand, representing triumph, and a laurel branch in the other, symbolizing peace. The image is ensconced within soccer ball. The World Cup logo, adapted for the 1986 tournament, stretches across the bottom. The top rim bears the inscription “1985 450 años de la casa de moneda” with the denomination of “$250” to the right of the horse. The reverse of the coin bears the Mexican Coat of Arms, whose imagery represents the triumph of good versus evil. The reverse legend, "ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS," is inscribed along the top rim.

This attractive commemorative gold coin is an apt tribute to the impressive lineage of Mexican coinage, as well as Mexico's most beloved sport. Add this 1985 Mexican 250 Peso Proof Gold World Cup coin to your collection today by visiting Gainesville Coins.
