Mexico 5 Pesos  1951 to 1954
Mexico 5 Pesos 1951 to 1954

That's a nice, big, bold silver coin. 1954 is the 'good' year for the series, with only 30,000 minted. Coins dated 1951 to 1953 are worth less.

The precious metal in the coin makes it valuable. This coin contains 0.643 troy ounces of pure silver. At $17 per troy ounce, today's silver value, that's $17 x 0.643 = $11 just on precious metal alone. You must look up the current value of silver. It changes every day. Check kitco.com.

Here are some typical added values, over and above the silver value (BV), for this coin:

5 PESOS DATED 1951, 1952, 1953
worn: BV + $0 US dollars
average circualted: BV + $0
well preserved: BV + $5
fully uncirculated: BV + $10

5 PESOS DATED 1954
worn: BV + $20 US dollars
average circualted: BV + $40
well preserved: BV + $65
fully uncirculated: BV + $90

To find base value BV, multiply the current price of silver by 0.643.
