    How old are we talking about?

    If it's 1866-67 Maximilliano 1 peso, or Balance Scale Pesos from mid-late 1800's - then yes, but if it's 1930's and 40's Un Pesos - then no much of a market, other than melt value.

    Cabalito pesos sell well also... there's always a demand for those.

    Ah, forgot about the "little horse" image

    Also forgot my favorite 20th century Mexico coin - 1921 Dos Pesos (or as I like to call it - the original libertad image )
  • I have a 1949 Mexico 1 Peso -- tyhe extremely rare one -- coming back from NGC as AU-58...should be here tomorrow and I'll get photos of it to post one here....IF YOU HAVE AN INTEREST, let me know....I'll listen to reasonable offers....

  • 7Jaguars7Jaguars Posts: 7,182 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Ahhh, Caballitos - my weakness! Oh sorry back to the point in hand....I agree with the above. The 1949 is a good year but demand may be better elsewhere.

    Resurrecting a 16-year old thread is an interesting tactic to try and sell your Peso.

    Hahaha and his 1st ever post!!!

    Collecting interests: Mexico & Peru early milled 1 reales + 1796-1891 US dimes

    Sports: NHL & NFL

    Thank you Lord for another beautiful day!!!

  • Huh? I didn't "resurrect" anything....Nor am I 'desperate' to sell this coin -- they are genuinely scarce, and to the collector of
    later 20th Century Mexican coins, the only truly "rare" issue to fill out a thorough collection....If there are no interested serious collectors on this forum, I'll offer it to dealers in such coinage who do understand its rarity and value.

    Just so we don't get off track from the OP's question, bronc's pieces were all in fact Mexican Revolution 1914-15 1 and 2 pesos. He had like 25 Muera Huertas!! I asked him through a seance and he told me. I just got in the DeLorean, went back to 2006 and bought them all at fair market value for then. I'm now rich!!!!

    And yes, I made sure to to bring USD bills dated from back then so he wouldn't suspect anything. Duh!!

    The resurrectionist poster needs to chill or gracefully exit as in fact he did piggyback onto a 16 yo thread. Also, nobody disparaged his coin but will note demand for such, although it exists is not overall that high amongst most Mexican collectors - too old to be "modern" and too new to be classic. This is not the correct forum for sales trolling either - see the World Buy Sell Trade.

  • I posted my inquiry where I thought it would be appropriate (Mexican coins)...the "piggyback", as you see it, existed there as those were earlier offerings....Had I known it would be so upsetting to you, I would have opted for the other location of World BUY/Sell/Trade....go find something else to nitpick...

    I mean, a first post trying to sell such a piece on a 17 year old thread is just several kinds of LOL... but what he describes is a $2K coin:

  • Being my first post and being unfamiliar with the format, I scrolled down to the Mexican coins section....again, if your Nurse Ratched commentator fails to understand that otherwise logical choice, this place is not one I'll continue using...

    Someone's a little testy.

  • "Testy"...yep...guilty as charged...but, then, as a newbie to a forum, I hadn't quite expected to be criticized for the apparentl
    sin of posting my first message in an (apparently) obscure category as was sneeringly pointed out by one of your "regulars:...Other forums I've participated on aren't quite as critical as this guy seems to be and, rather, are more inclined to help a "newbie" navigate to a proper listing place....I've been a dealer for over 40+ years, so I have plenty of contacts still in the industry to whom I can offer that coin since an astounding value of $2K seems to be unapproachable for the participant here....Sorry if I created any problems for those who look at this category....I'll not darken your hallways any further...

    The original poster wanted information on an "Ike un peso".

    It always seemed to me that the image of the maiden is poorly designed and ugly.

    Peace.

    You are talking about this no?

    Never had the chance to own one in mint state, maybe it would show up better details, on the face, but no idea.

    Yes, it is, bad art in my opinion.

    Why did they do so ugly in coin? So beautiful original.


    I don't understand why they did so ugly and do it again...

    Maybe it's something like "my nephew is good at drawing, put him on"...

    Peace.

  • 7Jaguars7Jaguars Posts: 7,182 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Yes, the original statue is beautiful but the 1921 2 Pesos coin has to be viewed from a few feet back as it is lacking in aesthetics and even the more recent Libertad is a bit sad if the face is scrutinized...The original seems to take after St. Gaudens just a bit. The only thing I can say is the more recent Libertad has facial features which do look less classical and a bit more as an ethnic Mexican woman & nothing wrong with that but maybe they could revamp the face just a bit even so??

    I don’t think most collectors are looking at her face….

    I tried to do a search on the net with zero findings, also if one goes to verify the PCGS certify number the description does not have the right one nor the PCGS# think it is the correct one, since that leds to the Eagle type not to this coin.

  • bidaskbidask Posts: 13,812 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Not sure what to say about that other than 300 minted

    Maybe most were melted

    The reference on PCGS it is wrong it is for another coin, it is this one:
    https://coins.ha.com/itm/mexico/mexico-republic-gold-100-pesos-1998-/a/3016-24779.s

    There is nothing about a price for the coin and almost no information too.

    I know it is not much of a help, but at least some references.

    Good and just to give it a little more search to me it is this one, the coin seems that was made on 1997 and can have also the 1998 date, I have seen this on some other coins from similar sets:
    https://www.ngccoin.com/price-guide/world/mexico-estados-unidos-mexicanos-100-pesos-km-626-1997-cuid-1116538-duid-1418737

    Or a similar one:
    https://www.ngccoin.com/price-guide/world/mexico-estados-unidos-mexicanos-100-pesos-km-669-1998-cuid-1161962-duid-1448023

    At least on these there is a price to start or for reference.

    HTH
