Mexico 1-PESO (KM459) Northern Caracara

This large sort-of-silver peso was issued from 1957 to 1967. With only 10% silver content, Mexico did not bother displaying the silver content on the coin as they usually did.

This coin marks the 100th anniversary of the constitution and features Jose Morelos y Pavon on the reverse. Jose Morelos took over the leadership of the Mexican Independence movement in 1811, and was captured and executed in 1815.
