Today I visited my local coin shop to look for some Mexican silver. They were out of Mexican silver coins so I turned my attention to a tin filled with some Mexican clad coins from the 1970s and 1980s. Although not silver and very low in value, they look great and I decided to purchase almost all of them.
I paid $5.00 for a bag of 24 coins. They consisted of eight (8) Cuauhtemoc 50 Centavos, twelve (12) Morelos Un Peso, and four (4) Quetzalcoatl 5 pesos. Although they are not silver, they are very beautiful coins and I have not seen them around as much as I used to, so I decided to buy them. I am very happy with my purchase. Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy.
Please enjoy some pictures from a trip to Venice Beach. The beach was beautiful and I loved the public art and the handmade crafts being sold by artists. I noticed several people living in vans and RVs in parking lots and parked along the street, which might be a cost-effective way to live near the action without the burden of the high housing costs. The weather was nice, people-watching was great, and the fish tacos were amazing! Definitely going back to enjoy the sights again in the future.
Dime Con Quién Andas y te Diré Quién Eres, which in English means: tell me who you spend your time with and I will tell you who you are. I first heard this as a teenager visiting Mexico and I believe that it this is true. Futhermore, I also believe that not only who you spend your time with but HOW, also reveals who your are.
As mentioned in the About page, I am a Hispanic American that is interested in the creation of wealth, I have taken interest in the investment of silver and Mexican coins. While collecting these coins, I have also discovered the history and the STORY, not just of Mexicans, but of all Latinos in their homelands and their eventual pursuit of the American Dream. I ask that you join me as I journey through the creation of wealth, discovery of history, and the “Latin flavor” found in multi-cultural lifestyles throughout the world.
In summary, I may be defined by the the content of this blog of how I spend my time but also look forward to becoming part of those that visit this site.
