Mexico 20-NUEVOS PESOS (KM561)

Northern Caracara

Mexico underwent monetary reform in 1992, with one new peso equal to 1,000 old pesos. This new 20 peso coin is denominated as "N$ 20" (N for "new"). After 1995, the "new" designation was dropped. I was quite surprised to see actual silver being used in a common coin at the end of the 20th century, but here it is.
