This beautiful, old coin is a five peso piece from 1948. On one side is an image of the Aztec Guaumtemoc. It reads; Cinco Pesos - 30 Gramos - Ley 0.900 - Mo.. Basically it is 30 grams (approximately 0.96 troy ounces) of 90% pure silver, minted in Mexico. The reverse side has the Seal of Mexico, the iconic image of an eagle with a snake in its beak. Across the top it reads; Estatos Unidos Mexicanos.
The coin measures about 1 9/16” in diameter and is in nice, circulated condition. It retains most of the detail. There is some soiling or discoloration on the eagle side. This has not been graded.
