In 1936, a new 5 centavos coin with a composition of copper-nickel was introduced as a replacement for the previous bronze 5 centavos coin that ran from 1914 to 1935.

Besides a different composition, the new coin was smaller in diameter (20.5 mm versus 28 mm) and all coins were minted at the Mexico City Mint from 1936 to 1942 but no coins were issued in 1939 & 1941.

Design

The obverse design features the Mexican coat of arms, an eagle clutching a snake while it perches on a prickly pear cactus. On the outer periphery is the phrase “ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS” or as translated to English “United Mexican States”.

The reverse design features the denomination “5 CENTAVOS” within the Aztec Stone Calendar. Above the denomination is the year of issue. All coins were minted at the Mexico City Mint and display an “M” mint mark in between the year of issue and denomination.
