    found a 10 peso coin

    This is a 1976 10 Peso, Mexican coin I found in a box of halves. It's about the size of a half. Anyone know what they are made of?

    Coins older than 1992 are no longer circulated in Mexico, so it has some collector value. Definaltely no silver in it. I believe it equals to about a 1$ coin back when it was used.

    I'll trade you 10 of those coins for one 40%er!!! I found two $2 dollar Canadian coins in a box of halves I opened a few weeks ago and I live close to Canada so those will be spent in the next few months!

    So what happens if you have one in Mexico? What did they do with all the old pesos? I remember they redid the exchange rates a while back.. but I always wonder what happens when a country redoes their money and what happens to the old stuff? Did people turn them in back then for new money?

    They wouldn't accept it. I don't think they are worth anything in mexico unless its an old silver coin. A devaluation happend in 1992. I wasn't even around back them but i'm pretty sure they would be able to turn them in for new one's.
