This specimen is one of a type struck in Mexico 1882-83 along with similar one and two centavos pieces. It was an attempt to emulate the American introduction of small copper cents and copper-nickel five cent pieces and it was a flop. In 1886, the Mexico City mint resumed striking the old style silver five centavos.

Recorded mintage: 40,000,000 for 1882-83.

Specification: 5 g, copper-nickel, 20 mm diameter, plain edge.

Catalog reference: KM 396.
