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.
