Mexico 1 Peso  1866 and 1867
Mexico 1 Peso 1866 and 1867

Maximilian ruled Mexico from 1864 to 1867. This peso, along with a gold 20 pesos coin, was his primary numismatic (coin collector) contribution. There are three mint marks used, Mo, Pi and Go. Our picture has the common Mo (Mexico City) mint mark, which shows a small o hovering above a large M. If you have one with a Go mint mark, that's the big time. The Pi mint mark is like the Mo Mint mark.

Here are some approximate catalog values for these grand old Mexican beauties.

1866 to 1867, Mo and Pi mint mark:
worn: $50 US dollars catalog value
average circulated (like our picture): $75
well preserved: $250
fully uncirculated: $800

1866, Go mint mark:
worn: $500 US dollars catalog value
average circulated (like our picture): $750
well preserved: $1100
fully uncirculated: $3500

Because the value of this coin rises swiftly with condition, watch out for cleaned specimens. For examples of cleaning, and for the proper interpetation of the catalog values quoted above, refer to our Important Terminology page (link at upper left).

Hey you said that there was also another coin that was a gold 20 Pesos coin. If you could make another page for it and it's values then that would be amazing! Because I think that I have one. I just want you to know that I frequently use this page and want to thank you for creating it. - Nathan
Wow. Cool. I hope you have one. It is up to you to start the page-making process by submitting a free appraisal request. Feel free to do so. As with most free services, you have to wait for pending requests to clear before you submit your request. - CoinQuest (Paul)
