Mexico 10, 20 and 50 Centavos 1905 to 1945 | 20 mexico 10 50 wreath hat star bird cap snake headdress hawk falcon eagle mouth an mexican mecican mex mexicano Nice coin. And silver, too. These old 10, 20, and 50 centavos coins from Mexico have wide variations in catalog values over their 1905 to 1945 history. The listings below call out the three denominations and give approximate catalog values. It is a little complicated, so look closely. This page applies to coins with the wreathed Liberty cap and starburst on the reverse side.

As always on CoinQuest, we report approximate catalog values. Actual buy and sell values will be different. Use our Important Terminology page (link at upper left) to understand these differences.

To figure the melt value or the basic value of silver in the coin, use a web site such a kitco.com to find the current value of silver per troy ounce, then multiply by the troy ounces in your coin. (Note: for precious metals like gold and silver, 'ounces' and 'troy ounces' mean the same thing.)
