Mexican gold pesos are minted of .900 fine gold. The famous Mexico City Mint, the oldest in North America, produced gold pesos from the early years of the twentieth century into the 1970s in denominations ranging from two pesos to fifty.
All of which share a common design on the obverse: the Mexican Coat of Arms, depicting an eagle perched on a cactus with a serpent in its beak. The 2.5-peso, 5 pesos, and 10-peso coins also share a reverse featuring a portrait of Don Miguel Hidalgo, the beloved priest, and father of Mexican independence who was executed for his efforts to free the country from Spanish rule.
