The Mexican 50 Pesos gold coin, also referred to as the Centenario, was first issued in 1921 to celebrate Mexico's 100th Anniversary of Independence. The Mexican Mint struck hundreds of thousands of Gold 50 Pesos annually until production ceased in 1931. A surge in gold demand later prompted a re-release of the brilliant design in 1943, and with that, millions of ounces of exquisite gold coinage poured forth until 1972 when production ceased again.

Gold 50 Pesos minted from 1947 through 1972 bear the 1947 issue year. A special production run in 1996 fed a hungry market nearly 8 million Gold 50 Pesos, all 1947-dated restrikes. Short, sporadic production runs of 1947-dated restrikes throughout the 2000s added another 300,000 to the Gold 50 Pesos tally.

The Mexican Mint produced 1,588,000 Gold 50 Pesos in 1946.

The Gold 50 Pesos obverse features Mexico’s National Coat of Arms with a golden eagle perched on a cactus grasping a snake with its beak. ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS is stamped around the field’s perimeter. The reverse of the Gold 50 Pesos proudly displays the Winged Victory “The Angel of Independence” design, and markings in the fields for 50 PESOS, 37.5Gr. ORO PURO, 1821 and the coin’s year of issue 1946.

Each Gold 50 Pesos has a 90% gold composition and contains 1.2057 troy ounces of pure gold, with the balance comprised of a copper base metal. At a total combined weight of 1.34 troy ounces, each Gold 50 Pesos is a seriously heavy hitter!
