The Mexican Mint has a rich history of producing a variety of coins for colonies, territories, and nations throughout the Western Hemisphere. With the emergence of an independent Mexican state, the mint began producing coins with the legend “peso” on them in 1863. The Peso remains the official currency of Mexico today, but not all denominations have been commonly issued. Right now, rare 250 Peso Mexican Gold Coins are available to purchase online from JM Bullion.

Common 250 Peso Mexican Gold Coins include the 1985 World Cup-450th Anniversary of the Mexican Mint coin and the 1986 World Cup Gold Coin. The former coin featured a robed woman on horseback riding with a laurel branch in one hand on the reverse. The background field included a soccer ball and there was an engraving beneath denoting the upcoming 1986 FIFA World Cup that would be hosted in Mexico. These 1985-dated coins were issued in conjunction with the 450th anniversary of the Mexican Mint’s founding in 1535 and featured an engraving above the design field denoting the 450th anniversary.
The reverse of the 1986 250 Peso Mexican Gold Coins includes the image of a soccer ball in front of a wall that contains artistic depictions of Ancient Aztec symbols. This side also has inscriptions of logo for the 1986 FIFA World Cup and a Spanish inscription of “Copa Mundial de Futbol.”
On the obverse of all of these coins is the Mexican coat of arms that features a powerful eagle locked in battle with a serpent. The bird sits on the arm of a cactus with one talon and its beak working to contain the serpent. All of these coins were issued by the Mexican Mint with the “Mo” mint mark.
