Sell Mexican Gold Centenario to the Best Buyer in Las Vegas and Henderson, NV

The gold Centenario or the Centenario de Oro is one of Mexico’s bullion coins in 1921. It purposely minted as a commemorative of the 100th anniversary of Mexico’s liberation from Spain, which suggested the name Centenario. Although the coin has a face value of 50 Mexican pesos, it is not used as a currency form. Instead, it is only meant to be used for legal purposes.

Brief History

Mexican Gold Centenario was first issued from 1921 to 1931. It was issued yearly for ten years within that period. It was called “Centenario” to commemorate the hundredth-year memorial of the independence of Mexico from Spain. Because of the Centenario gold coins’ popularity, these were reproduced and reissued from 1943 to 1972 by the Mexican Mint or known before as La Casa de Moneda de México. It is considered one of the oldest mints in the world.

Gold Centenario paved the way for reproducing two new Mexican Gold Coins: the Mexican Libertad Gold Coins and the Mexican Peso Gold Coin. The latter had been in circulation since the 19th century up to the early 20th century. In contrast, the Mexican Libertad was issued last 1981, and its features followed the 1921 Gold Centenario up until the year 2000. Commemorative Medallic coins were also released without the 50 peso face value on the coin in 1943 and again in the 1950s and 1960s. 


Designed by Emilio del Moral, the Centenario Mexican gold coin’s obverse side highlights the image of Winged Victoria, which symbolizes independence. The image depicts her holding a laurel wreath in her right hand and her left hand’s broken chains of colonialism. The two historical and important Mexican volcanoes, Popocatepetl and Iztaccihautl, were used as the background. Also, the year 1821 was engraved as Mexico’s year of independence on the lower left of the coin.

The reverse side of the coin depicts the Mexican Coat of Arms. It is an eagle perched on a cactus with a serpent in its beak. ‘ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS’, which is translated as the United States of Mexico, was also engraved on the coin’s reverse side.


The 50 Gold coin is considered to be the Centenario coin in Mexico. It is said to be the most popular coin that Mexican Mint has ever released. Its size is 1.2057 Ounces. The gross weight is 41.67 grams or 1.3396 oz. Its actual gold weight is 37.50 grams or 1.2057 oz. It is also made from .900 gold or 21.6 karats, 90% of pure gold, and 10% of copper alloy.

There are also other Mexican Gold Coins, such as the Mexican Peso Gold Coins and The Mexican Libertad Gold Coins.
