    i just found a 1978 silver mexican peso. ive checked eBay and several other sites. i cant find it. it has a picture of an eagle on the back, with the words "Estados Unidos Mexicanos" above it, and some guy in a turban-like thing on the front. anyone know what this is worth, if anything? :confused:

    I doubt it's worth much.

    if it's an ounce, then it's like 10 bucks or so. It should say the number of the value

    un peso it's 1 peso or "One Peso". Peso it's the name, as in Dollar is the name of your coin or Yen is the japanese name

    so that's about 10 cents of Dollar, or pretty much worthless...

    so keep it as a suveneir or something

    Ha, didn't know that. Looking back, that makes perfect sense. I didn't think about it.

    Corinthian just answered that. It isn't worth much of anything.

    The shipping would cost more than the amount it'd sell for. Just try using it in a vending machine or parking meter (if it breaks the meter, free parking!)
