Mexico 1, 2, and 5 Centavos 1882 and 1883
Small coins with this bow and arrows pattern were issued in copper-nickel by the Mexican Republic for only two years. The date on the coin, 1882 or 1883, makes a difference in value for these coins.

Requester description: 1882 On the front of the coin are the words Republica Mexicana and the date 1882. There is also what appears to be a ribbon tied around what may be a candle and some other things (2 others) that could be some kind of staffs or one could be a two handled axe. On the backside is a wreath of leaves with berries with what appears to be a ribbon at the bottom and in the middle is what appears to be a closed II like a square 0 or it may be a roman numeral II.
