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.
