The obverse side of the coin features the image of one of Mexico’s greatest heroes, Don Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla. Costilla, formerly a pastor, was the leader of a group of civilians that fought in the Mexican War for Independence. He became a martyr for the people as he was executed by firing squad. The image here is a profile of him facing to the left. Below the image to the left is ‘DOS Y MEDIO PESOS’. Underneath the image on the right side is an ‘M’, the mint mark for the Banco de Mexico. Near the mint mark is the year the coin was issued. 

 

On the reverse side of the coin is Mexico’s National Coat of Arms. This image recreates the scene the Aztecs came upon where they witnessed a Mexican Gold Eagle with a rattlesnake in its mouth. They believed this was a sign that told them this was where they needed to build their great city. That city became Mexico City. Here is the eagle standing on a cactus using its beak and claws to subdue the snake. Above the image is ‘ESTRADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS’ which means the United States of Mexico.

    I hunt down every Mexican 2.5 Gold Peso I can find that is reasonably priced and Hero Bullion has had the lowest priced 2.5 Gold Peso I can find in the last 2-3 years of searching.
    The delivery was fast and hassle free. Great first experience.
