So I was getting a couple of coins to put up on another site I frequent for their “Mexican Toner Tuesday”. I thought they looked pretty good so why not put them up here for all my ANA friends to enjoy, I hope. None of these coins are rare or expensive. I will just give a short information list on them.

The first coin is a Mexican 1959-- 50 CENTAVOS. It is a bronze coin that was circulated from 1955-1959. It weighs in at a 14 grams and has a diameter of 33mm. The KM is # 450.

The next coin is a 1932 UN PESO. This circulating coin was minted 1920-1945. It is .720 silver with a weight of 16.6 grams. It has a 34mm diameter. KM #455.

Next up is my 1980 One Troy Ounce of non circulating, bullion .925 silver. This coin weighs 33.625 grams. It is 41.5 mm in diameter. It was minted from 1978-1980. The KM #79b.5 meaning it is a variety with a raised “O” as well as the direction the left pan of the scale points to the “U” UNA. This coin was sold as a bullion coin, much like our SAE’s.

If the reader would like more info on these three coins I suggest you go to en.numista.com. They have all the juicy facts I am leaving out today. I hope you enjoy seeing these beauties. Feel free to comment.

Thanks for sharing Longstrider! I really like the design of the 1932 UN Peso ! The toning on those coins is pretty nice also. I usually don’t care for toned coins, but these pictures have made me rethink that concept!

Love the toning on the last one!

Awesome coin toning. When I was younger, always thought toning decreased value and appeal. I was wrong, or things have changed. I like toning, but sometimes the toning jyst looks crusty or dull. The rainbow colors are interesting. Thanks
