Becky S. writes: Dear Coin Doc, We have received a coin as a gift and don’t know it’s value. Would you pleas help us. The coin came in an numismatic, precious metals and fine jewelry package. It is a small gold coin it has Spanish writings on it. This is how it reads: (DOS Y MEDIO PESOS * 1946). This is all on the face of the coin. On the other side of the coin there is an bird, I’m not sure what kind he has his wings out reached. This side of the coin reads: (ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS). Please help us. Thank you, Coin dummies.
You have a 1946 Mexico gold 2 1/2 pesos. This is a bullion coin, that is, its value is associated with the price of gold. The coin contains .0602 of a troy ounce of pure gold. To determine this coin’s approximate value multiply this decimal against the price of gold. See the CoinSite Metals Page to get the current price of gold.
